League - Combined Counties League Premier Division



Marc McGrath might just have kept Guernsey hopes of winning the Combined Counties Premier Division alive with a last-minute winner to beat Sandhurst Town.

It was another monumental effort from the Green Lions as they mustered all the mental strength they had grind out another result when they can't have much energy left in their legs.

Carl Carder-Andrews's looping header gave the visitors the lead midway through the first half, but Dom Heaume set up McGrath for a simple finish on the half-hour, his first goal since rejoining the squad.

Glyn Dyer struck an absolute thunderbolt just before the hour to turn the game around but Sinclair pegged the game back level less than 10 minutes later. The visitors also hit the bar and saw one cleared off the line as Tony Vance's side were tiring.

Dave Rihoy saw a goalbound effort cleared off the line in the final five minutes and it looks at though the Green Lions' title hopes, and maybe even promotion, were over. But with less than one minute on the clock, a long throw dropped kindly for McGrath, who made no mistake from eight yards to spark wild celebrations.

11 points behind Egham Town with three games in hand, the Green Lions need one more slip up from their rivals and to win all five of their remaing games, but they are still in it - just.
