Home FA Cup tie for Guernsey FC if they beat Phoenix Sports

Guernsey FC
Guernsey FC have won two and lost two in their opening four matches this season

Guernsey FC could play a first ever FA Cup tie on the island if they can win in the preliminary round on Saturday.

If the Green Lions win at Phoenix Sports, they will be at home to Isthmian Premier League side Lewes in September's first qualifying round.

It would be the first time that an FA Cup match has been played in the Channel Islands.

Under rules set out by the FA, Guernsey cannot play any replays at home and must pay for their opponents travel.

Guernsey made their debut in the event in 2013, beating Crawley Down Gatwick and Hastings United before losing to Dover Athletic in the second qualifying round.

Last season they lost 2-0 away at Worthing in their opening tie.
