Guernsey's Priaulx League side could play more games this season, according to manager Steve Sharman.

The team were knocked out of the FA Inter-League Cup at the weekend, ending their hopes of any more competitive games for the remainder of the season.

But Sharman is hopeful that he can keep his squad of the best players from Guernsey's domestic league together.

"We'll look to have a game or two over the Easter period," Sharman told BBC Radio Guernsey.

"The idea is to play every three months with a five-week build-up period for the game, so it's not just about the game situation, but they also train at a different level as well."

Some of the side will form the Guernsey squad which takes on Alderney in the Muratti semi-final next spring and players from Isthmian League club Guernsey FC will also be involved.

Sharman has coached the Priaulx League side with Guernsey FC assistant manager Colin Fallaize and a number of the club's backroom team.

"From our point of view it's an opportunity for players if they want to push themselves up to a senior Muratti team and to Guernsey FC," he said.

"It's about raising the opportunities for those players playing in the Priaulx League."
