Guernsey Island Amateur Athletics Club
Footes Lane is a multi-use sports stadium in Saint Peter Port,
Guernsey and is the main sports venue on the island. It has a
capacity of 5,000 with 720 seated. The stadium is the national
stadium of the Bailiwick of Guernsey.
The stadium is used for a number of sports and is used by the rugby
Guernsey RFC who play in National League 3 London &
SE and the stadium also hosts Guernsey's annual
Siam Cup games
against Jersey Reds when the match is played in Guernsey.
The stadium also hosts association football and hosted a Hampshire Cup
match in 2010 with
Guernsey Rangers defeating Hamble
4–2. It is the home ground of
Guernsey who play in the Isthmian
League Division 1 South. The team's first competitive match against
Knaphill F.C. ended in a 5–0 win to Guernsey. In addition, the
ground from 2003 to 2009 hosted Guernsey's Muratti games before the
future games were moved to
The Track due to fans complaining that the
presence of the athletics track between the grandstands and the pitch
put the spectators too far away from the game action. It is also noted
Guernsey did not win a single Muratti while playing at Footes
The ground is also used for athletics as seen by the running track
around the outside of the pitch.
Footes Lane in addition hosts the
Guernsey Marathon and was also used for the athletics
events at the 2003 Island Games.
In addition, field hockey is also played there, mainly hosting
Guernsey's representative team.
Footes Lane's grandstand was completed in time for the 2003 Island
Games at a cost of £1.2 million. Within its first year of
construction it won a Civic Trust award for architectural design.
Additional club and function room facilities were added in 2011.
