The Guernsey official football team is the official football team representing the island of Guernsey (which is not part of the United Kingdom, but is a Crown dependency) in non-FIFA international football matches. It is not affiliated with FIFA or UEFA, and therefore cannot compete for the FIFA World Cup or UEFA European Football Championship.

History

Since 1905, they have competed with Alderney and Jersey for the Muratti Vase, winning it 46 times, most recently in 2014. The players are selected from the Guernsey leagues, with the top Division being the FNB Priaulx League.

Guernsey Football went under a transformation at the start of the 2011–12 season when Guernsey F.C. was created, which led to the vast majority of the top Island players competing in the English non-league pyramid system for the very first time.

The official team is coached by Stephen Sharman who was appointed in September 2013 after Kevin Graham stepped down.

Ladies team

The team is made up from players in the four local teams of women's football, Vale Rec, Rangers, Rovers and Sylvans.

A Woman's team has competed annually against Jersey in the Muratti tournament since 1997.

Won: 6 Drawn: 0 Lost: 13

Guernsey Women have competed in the Island Games since 2001.

The best result was 4th place in 2003.

In 2016 Ormer FC was created to allow Guernsey Women to compete in UK competitions, it is affiliated to the Hampshire Football Association. This was followed by GFA announcing they would create an alternative Women's team to do something similar.
