JTC Wanderers U15’s hosted Middleton FC from Manchester on 30 May 2016 where a good crowd enjoyed a thoroughly entertaining match up at JTC Park on a bank holiday Monday.
The final score showed our visitors taking a one-nil win following a Wanderers slip up in the first half.
Ian Nolan, Middleton Manager commented that he had seen high quality passing and a great technical game displayed by JWFC but it was the physical game of the visitors which gave them the very slight edge. JWFC Under 15s Manager Paul Greenwood also said: “It’s so important to have the chance to play competitively against teams from off the Island so that we able to identify where improvements could be made and measure our ongoing progress.
“We were delighted to be able to welcome Middleton to Jersey and I thought the Wanderers’ boys were excellent at the back, playing it out into the middle third. We never really converted that build up play in the final third which is of course an area of concern but one which we’re working hard towards over our training this summer.”
