Programme reveals football match 'stopped' by the Nazis

It was a football match that would have seen a team of Nazi forced labourers play a Guernsey club side.

But the 1943 "Continental XI" - featuring Spanish, Belgian and French workers - never played, apparently thwarted by the Nazi occupiers who brought them to the Channel Islands.

A recently-discovered matchday programme has shed new light on a relatively unknown part of Guernsey's World War Two history.
