U21 Muratti 2017

Preview U21 Ambassdeur Bowl Muratti

Jersey FA travel to Guernsey this weekend ahead of the Ambassdeuar Bowl U21 Muratti Final #JERvGUE

Jersey FA take on Guernsey FA at the Track on 15th April as Guernsey host the annual Ambassdeur Bowl Muratti Final. In recent years this has been a closely contested affair with Guernsey winning the last three encounters. 

This year however the mood in the u21 squad is positive as Jersey FA Link Asset Services Centre of Excellence Director, Paul Renton explains, "It’s the first season the u21 squad has been linked into the Link Asset Services Centre of Excellence. We selected a good group of players from our affiliated Clubs and put a small training and games programme in place which incorporated Northern Ireland schoolboys u18s leading to the u21 Ambassadeur Bowl Muratti Final. We will be looking to develop this programme to provide more opportunities over the coming years."

u21 Coach Chad Morris added; "The squad came together in January to start their training programme based around the Centres philosophies, values and team targets. We now have consistent messages for all our teams from u11s all they way through to under 21's."

As part of the u21's season the players have enjoyed playing competitive games for their Clubs within the Combination League which has been supplemented with our short programme. The build up has included the game v Northern Ireland Schoolboys at the beginning of February, weekly coaching sessions on Wednesday evenings and in house 11v11 games v our u18s."

"We expect a tough game away from home this year, and the previous record may suggest we start the game as slight underdogs. However we hope to put in a good performance and get the result we all all looking for."
