Squad for Faroe Islands match announced + Rock Cup upset

Allen Bula has selected a 20 man training squad in preparation for the friendly match against the Faroe Islands on the 11th March.

 

At a press conference, alongside team captain Daniel Duarte, GFA president Gareth Latin and GFA General Secretary Richard Manning, he announced the following training squad:

J. Perez, P.Reyes, J.Borg, R. Casciaro, B. Perez, R. Chipolina, M.Reoch, D. Hammond, S. Mascarenhas, Y. Santos, A. Payas, D. Duarte, W. Asquez, R. Guilling, K. Casciaro, S. Garro, E. Green, A. Hernandez, B. Perez, J. Chipol, A. Greene, L. Casciaro, G. Lopez, M. Yome, L. Muscatt, P.Podesta, T. Charay, K. Chipolina.

 

It was also announced that a friendly quadrangular tournament was secured for November, with touring teams from the Isle of Man, Guernsey and Jersey, 3 of the nations competing in this summers Island Games at the Isle of Wight.  Presumably more on this will appear a lot closer to the date of the tournament.

 

The Rock Cup saw unbeaten second division side Gib Pilots cause the shock of the night, beating Premier side Manchester United 5-4 on penalties, after the game ended 1-1 after 90 minutes.  Gib Pilots, who are now unbeaten in 14 games this season, look favourites to go up, and put in an impressive performance against more illustrious opposition.

 

In the other Rock Cup match that took place, Lincoln saw off Lynx FC once again, although unlike the 9-1 in the Premier Cup, this score was a more respectable 2-0.
