Well, after putting up the 'no comment' shutters to all enquiries on Wednesday, the club issued a statement on Thursday afternoon. The Dear Chairman (DC), Steve Dewsnip, included the following in the statement:
"We have always said that if players from outside of Guernsey wish to move to the island, become part of the local community and are good enough to strengthen our squad, we will consider them."
"Secondly, for Jack or anybody else to come and play for us, it is simply not sustainable for them to play regularly and effectively for GFC without becoming resident in Guernsey. Whilst it is true to say that he has approached us and we have had some informal discussions with him very much along these lines, there are very many things to fall into place, which should not be underestimated, before this might become a reality."
On the same day GFC quoted Tony Vance thus:
"I have spoken to Jack about this, and whilst I am happy to offer him the opportunity and carrot to dip his toe in the water and train with us, selection will be made on merit. To put it simply, I am sure Jack will realise very quickly that to gain selection ahead of the lads who have bought into this 100% may require a decision to be made on relocating."
