The men have lost three out of three in their tough group, while the ladies have a 100 per cent record after their first three encounters.

After beating Hitra 3-1 on Sunday the ladies enjoyed two impressive victories yesterday against Greenland and Shetland – both straight-set victories, 25-18, 25-15, 27-25 and 25-20, 25-5, 25-10 respectively.

Today they have a top-of-the-table clash with the mighty Saaremaa, who also have a 100 per cent record.

Jersey are likely to meet either the Faroes or Aland in the semi-finals.

Jersey’s men recovered from their mauling by a world-ranked Saaremaa side to give the powerful Cayman outfit a real scare yesterday morning.

Jersey led 1-0 and 2-1 in a 108-minute encounter before going down 3-2 (22-25, 25-18, 24-26, 25-17, 15-8).

Ankle sprain They lost Peter Cadiou to a bad ankle sprain in a match in which both Murray Dron, with superb blocking, and Scott Roberts, through the middle, impressed.

Said team manager Paul Adamson.

‘It certainly wasn’t unexpected to lose to Saaremaa, but we’re still upbeat and we played well against Cayman but lady luck wasn’t on our side – when it goes to five sets it’s anybody’s game.

But we’re enjoying ourselves and we’ll be cheering the girls on later.’ The men’s luck failed to change later in the day when they went down to a good Bermuda team 25-13, 25-22, 25-20.
