JTC Jersey Wanderers were very unlucky to go down by 3-2 to a strong St Clements side in the U14 Cup Final. It took a goal late into extra time to separate the two teams who fought out one of the most competitive and entertaining games seen at Springfield this season.
Assistant Manager Paul Greenwood commented: “Getting to the final in our first season was in itself an amazing achievement. The Wanderers squad is small currently with just 15 players and that was probably the difference in the end as St Clements is well established at this age group with two teams to select from.
“The game was a real credit to both sides with open flowing football throughout. St Clements were probably worthy winners in the end but our boys pushed them all the way and all credit to U14 Head Coach Ben Naylor who has moulded them into a really competitive team in such a short period. We’re already looking forward to the next season!”
