For anyone with too much time on their hands this afternoon Sky Sports is showing the thriller that will no doubt be San Marino v Gibraltar at 2pm. Hopefully an appearance by Louie Annesley will provide some interest for us.

Dayle Coleing the other pro in the starting XI, having joined the now fully pro Glentoran during the summer. Youngsters Jayce Olivero (over 30 caps at 22 years old and vice captain of the national team), Graeme Torrilla (combative centre mid) and Tjay De Barr (speedy forward, spent last season at Oviedo before injury and Covid meant he returned home) other names to watch. De Barr is very good at speeding past defenders and winning free kicks, which is a useful asset to have when you have a set piece taker like Liam Walker in the team.

Louie Annesley has scored his first international goal, against Liechtenstein.

EDIT: Oh wait no, UEFA got it wrong. Credited as an OG by Frommelt instead.

Yeah UEFA's score centre initially gave it to Louie but changed it.

EDIT: It's changed again, now Brändle OG.

Well Louie played the full 90 as Gibraltar drew 1-1 with Liechtenstein to secure promotion to League C. Looked pretty assured during the game and made a few dangerous headers when in attacking positions which just didn't come off as teammates were in the wrong positions. Should really have had an assist for a Kian Ronan goal but it was ruled out for a narrow offside. He'll get much better experience next season in League C where he'll potentially end up facing the likes of Northern Ireland, if they can't escape relegation. Hopefully by then he'll be in the Blackburn first team.

Congratulations on the promotion.

Malta took the lead and were in a promotion slot for all of 15 minutes but couldn't handle the power of the Faroe Islanders so they advance. We had been winning in Vigar in the opposite leg and conceded two injury time goals to lose 3-2!

Still it is a novelty for Malta to be on an unbeaten run in all matches since then.

You always know things are going well if Louie jumps up on your back, he does that whenever Gibraltar do well. Don't think he's ever done it to Tjay De Barr though as the striker's only little (hell of a player though)

Great signings for the Magpies. Won't pretend to know too much about Tomlinson but I always felt a bit sorry for Henley. Got a bit too much too soon after a couple of stellar performances as a 17 year old. Maybe had he come through at a different period in our history things could have been better for him here.

Makes sense, swore I saw Henley on a jog around Chorley not so long ago

Is that a youtube channel or from their official site?
