Tardif Announces Semi-Final Squad

Guernsey’s Senior Men’s Representative Manager, Chris Tardif, has announced his training squad ahead of the Muratti Vase semi-final against Alderney on 24th March.

For what will be his first foray into Muratti football as a Manager, Tardif has selected a strong squad, which blends experience with youth and will be looking for a better result than against in the RAF in a recent warm-up match. On selecting the squad, Tardif commented:

‘I am excited to have named my first training squad as Senior Island Representative Manager. It is my intention to select a 16 man squad from this group over the next two weeks to represent the Island against Alderney in the Muratti semi-final. This match has been my main focus since taking on my role and I am fully aware of the magnitude, complexities and difficulties of getting a positive result. Alderney are arguably as best equipped as they have ever been and I am under no illusion that the game will be a passionate, hard fought affair. This is reflected in the squad I have chosen and the respect I will give the game and opposition. However, it goes without saying that we are there to simply get a result, no matter how we do it, in order to continue to defend the Muratti Vase.’
