Next Home Match: Jersey FA Triple Header
The Jersey FA would like to welcome you all to the next match’ The Jersey FA Triple Header' featuring Jersey FA senior women, Jersey FA U18s and Jersey FA senior men.
The Jersey FA women will kick off the day at 10:15am against the Navy FA Women. Manager Petulla, will be looking to improve on last year’s result, when his team slipped to 2-1 defeat at the hands of the Navy FA.
The 2pm kick off see's the eagerly anticipated U18 Muratti. In recent years this match has been somewhat of a thriller, with a host of late goals. Jersey FA U18s have enjoyed a successful season under the new coaching partnership Steve Coutanche and Chad Morris, reaching the 3rd round of the FA County Youth Cup and picking up their best result in the Lynne Nicholson Memorial trophy over the past five years.
We asked Capita Centre of Excellence U18 coach chad Morris, How do you prepare the U18s for such a competitive fixture like the U18 Muratti?
"The players have already experienced high level football versus both Durham FA and Northern Ireland and acquitted themselves very well, therefore I think they are more than ready for their first experience of an U18 Muratti. Preparation is everything, something we at the Capita Centre of Excellence are very good at and because of that attention to detail a winning mentality is created."
Finally the evening kick off sees the Jersey FA Senior men take on the Navy FA. This will be the first competitive fixture of 2017 for the Jersey FA men and it is something manager Martin Cassidy is looking forward to;
"This is a good opportunity for my players to put into practice what we have been working on in the training against a strong and disciplined Navy FA side. I look forward to having a good crowd at Springfield to support the players."
