New committee set up for Guernsey leagues

Guernsey footballer's leg and football

Guernsey's football leagues will be controlled by a new management committee next season.

The League Management Committee will organise fixtures, registrations and rule changes, taking responsibility from the Guernsey Football Association.

Prior to the LMC's formation, the GFA was one of just a few county associations running its own leagues.

The new committee will be chaired by Keith Mansell and will initially operate as a subcommittee of the GFA.

The GFA will continue to retain responsibility for representative football, football development, governance, child welfare and player discipline and it will also operate the Guernsey FA Cup, Stranger Cup and the Jeremie Cup.
