The annual Brittany footballing spectacular has again attracted a maximum of 72 teams who will represent a total of 20 countries from around the world.

Jersey will be based in Douarnenez, in the west Finistère region on the coast, where they will play matches against French clubs Le Mans, Le Havre, AS Gignan and regional sides from Pays du Porzay and Selection Douarnenez.

Also in Jersey’s tough looking group are Dinamo Minsk (Belarus), FK Vidar Stavanger (Norway) and Rashidieh (Palestine).

St Mary Constable Ken Le Brun will again lead the Jersey party along with Football Development Officer Brian Oliver and coaches Dave Walsh and Simon Moiani.

Oliver said: ‘As well as the football this group will be taking in the cultural experience.

They will play and mix with lads from all around the world.

‘Football wise it will be a steep learning curve for them and, as always, every team they will play will be a new challenge.

They will also be coming up against lads whose playing standards are well above ours and hopefully they will all learn from the experience and return to Jersey as better players.’ Jersey play their opening fixtures on Thursday.

Jersey squad: Sam Dawkins, Andrew Gee, Curtis Guthrie, Lawrence Hughes, Scott Johnson, Matthew Ratcliff, Keiron Brennan, Elliot Poole, Zach Pygott, Bradley Stratford, John Tardivel, Sam Crabtree, Charlie Petulla, Matthew Rondel, Curtiss Hinault and Ryan Le Couteur.
