JFA still make final decision on going to Rhodes

The GFA’s council made the decision not to travel to the Greek island following fears over the safety of their players – overturning the GFA executive board’s proposal to travel.

JFA president Charlie Tostevin said: ‘Personally I’m surprised by Guernsey’s decision because I’m sure the players would love to be there.

‘The situation with Jersey is that the JFA Council have tentatively agreed to go but a final decision has still to be made.

‘I said after the incident in Guernsey that we would have to have assurances to guarantee the safety of officials, players and spectators and that remains the same.

‘I certainly hope Jersey teams will be there.’ Six players, five from Rhodes, were sent off by referee Wendy Toms which led to the match with Guernsey being abandoned and calls for the Greeks to be thrown out of the tournament.

Rhodes subsequently withdrew its team and imposed life bans on the guilty players.
