Guernsey FC's poor away form continued as they slumped to a 4-0 loss at promotion-chasing Dorking Wanderers.

Just 12 players made the trip to Surrey, with 16-year-old Seb Smeed making his first start, and the Green Lions found themselves 3-0 down after just 27 minutes.

Dorking got a fourth goal with 19 minutes to go.

Guernsey dropped to 13th place in Isthmian League Division One South and have lost their last eight away games.

The Green Lions have not won on their travels since a 2-0 win at Worthing on 12 December.

Despite the defeat, Smeed, who has also made two substitute appearances for the club, was delighted to make his full debut:

"It felt amazing being out on the pitch with some of the best players on the island. It was a privilege to be on there," he told BBC Radio Guernsey.

"There's a good balance as we've got good experience and some good youngsters coming through, and generations to come as well, so it's looking great."
