Vance feels his squad is strong enough to get promoted

Guernsey FC manager Tony Vance says he wants his side to win promotion in their first season in the Combined Counties League.

Vance's side were beaten 6-5 in their first-ever match against League Two side AFC Wimbledon but the result has given him confidence.

"We want to get promotion," Vance told BBC Guernsey.

His side will make their debut in the Combined Counties League First Division against Knaphill on Saturday, 6 August.

"It's going to be a tough ask," he added. "We don't honestly know what we're letting ourselves in for.

"The real key is going to be January, a wet windy night away on a Tuesday - what team have we got available and can we get the result?

"That, in all fairness, will establish if we can get promoted or not."
