Guernsey Football Club could face relegation from the Combined Counties Premier Division if its Footes Lane home is not upgraded.

The Football Association requires pitches at non-league pyramid step five level to have a perimeter fence around them.

The Culture and Leisure Department, which owns the ground, has applied for planning permission for the fence.

A consultation on the plans is due to run until 28 December.

Steve Dewsnip, Guernsey FC chairman, said they hoped to make other improvements as well.

He said: "We need to put in a couple of turnstiles... This will make it look and feel more like a football stadium than it currently is.

"We see it improving and enhancing the supporters' experience rather than anything else."
