The Guernsey Press have ran a story on a possible link up between Southampton and Guernsey.
The story comes from the recent purchase of £253,000-worth of Southampton shares by Guernsey businessman Tom Scott.
The article goes onto suggest that he could be about to sell his business CI Traders, which could trigger a move to attempt to buy a majority stake holding in the Saints.
The paper approached Chris Pringle, the Guernsey Football Association`s development officer, to ask if any takeover would provide stronger links between the club and the Island which famously is the home of Southampton legend Matthew Le Tissier (or God to you and me). He said: 'We do want the opportunity for our lads to be put in the shop window and to get top coaches over here as well. The football in the community works really well for Guernsey and it keeps the links with Southampton going while we`re looking.
We`re looking for stronger links with professional clubs to assist us specifically with player development.`
