Combination Division II clubs expressed concern that they might only field a first team after low numbers at pre-season training.St Lawrence manager Ian Watts, who had appealed to players to come forward through the JEP two weeks ago said: ‘I’m pleased to announce that we will continue with two teams.
We had 26 at training last night and of those 18 are signed on so we now have in the region of 40 players.’St Martin secretary Peter Bracegirdle said: ‘We haven’t made a final decision.
We’ve got 29 or so signed and I think we need 40 to run two teams.
We’re getting there but it’s touch and go.’We’ve got to make a final decision at the end of this month and that will depend on how many players we’ve got signed.
I think we might get there but there’s some work to be done.’Results and scorers from last night’s Jersey Football Association Charity Cup, first round matches were: St Martin 3 (Rob Lucas, Lance Guille, Ben Bryant), Jersey Nomads 7 (Julian Le Fèvre 4, Lee Benson 2, Carl Winn); St Paul’s 3 (Stuart McInnes, Glen Durrans, Lucas Parker), Jersey Wanderers 4 (Paul Banahan 2, Jon Southern, Chris Andrews); St John 5 (Eric Guégan, Graham Prescott, Derek Johnston 2, Neil Norris), SCF 3 (Ian Edwards 2, Tony Liot).
