Guernsey champions of the Channel Islands with 2-1 Muratti win

Guernsey saw off arch rivals Jersey 2-1 to win the 2013 Muratti and secure back-to-back trophies for the 1st time in 21 years. The hosts went 2 goals ahead with many of the pre-match predictions of a comfy Sarnian victory looking spot on. However Jersey rallied in the 2nd half and came close to forcing extra time.

Champions...Guernsey captain Chris Tardif lifts the Muratti vase
Craig Young's goal inside two minutes got the Green and Whites off to a flying start. Guernsey FC top scorer Ross Allen, who's netted in 2 previous Muratti finals, doubled the lead just before half-time as he ended a great 50-yard run with a strike that flew in off the woodwork. Jack Boyle pulled one back for Jersey after the break, while Darryl Wilson hit the side-netting for the visitors.
