Come on You Green Lions ! – GFC Chants in Guernsey French

Being a big fan of Guernsey Football Club I like nothing better than to watch our lads battling English Clubs on our home ground at Footes Lane. Although quite what the players and their fans make of it all when the crowd starts to bawl out words to songs like “Let’s all have a bean jar” or “We’re going Ormering” – we’ll never know.

So if we were also able to sing out loud and proud in Guernsey Patois as well – then we’d really be able to confuse them. In this article we share with you some “suitable chants” and phrases, as given to us in a GFC programme in the 2016 season and from language.gg … enjoy ! 😀
