The first Reserve team game of the season played out at Boulivot saw us start slowly which we unfortunately paid for by conceding a goal early on. Halfway through the first half we then thankfully picked up our pace, gained control and went on to score the next six goals to lead 6-1.
Such a score line meant that Wanderers’ complacency set in the second half and allowed Grouville to score one back which was then followed by a disputed penalty, which they also took with ease. Daniel Romeril was like lightening on the wing with Danny Newton and Cameron Elourey strong in the centre of defence. Sam Tumkaeuw really made some top class saves in goal, while we pushed for more balls at the back of the opposition’s net.
A strong start for us at the beginning of our season but it is only the start and we’re looking forward to really working together.
Final score 3-6 to JTC Jersey Wanderers Reserves.
