FELTHAM FC received a compliment from no higher an authority than Matthew Le Tissier on Saturday.
Channel Islander Le Tiss, who was dubbed Le God during his playing days with Southampton and England, is now club president of Feltham's hosts, Guernsey FC.
And he took time out from his usual Saturday slot in the Sky Sports studios to follow Feltham over to Guernsey, with the Sky cameras in tow, with the resulting footage to be shown on tomorrow's Soccer Saturday show.
The Feltham players bumped into Le Tissier back at the airport, and he impressed with the way they took the game to the runaway Combined Counties Division One leaders.
Blues boss Wayne Tisson said: “Matt said we played well and gave Guernsey more of a test than anybody else had this season.
“We knew how they would play, narrow and playing through teams as they have a really decent striker, so we set our stall out to contain them.
“No away team has scored at their place yet, but we came close to being the first and taking the lead when we had a chance cleared off the line.
“They complimented us afterwards too by saying that most teams go there and try to smash them up, but we went there and tried to play the game.
“Unfortunately we don't know what time we will be on Soccer Saturday, but I'm sure we will get a chance to watch it back.”
It will be back to normal this Saturday – with no travel by plane, television cameras or ex-internationals – as Feltham host Hartley Wintney.
But it will be just as tough a test, and yet another in a testing run which will have seen the Blues play all top five teams in four weeks.
