The home squad have had three sessions together this week in preparation and Jersey manager Dave Walsh is pleased with how things have gone.

Walsh said: ‘We fell at the first hurdle in the County Cup last year and hopefully that will not happen again this time.

The squad played very well against Scotland recently and the players now have to build on that performance.

‘This week we’ve worked on the shape of our side; the sessions have been very good and we’ve spent quite a bit of time with them working on set pieces too.’ Jersey coach Dave Kennedy said: ‘Training has been fantastic, there has been a lot to go through because it is still very early in the season and the players have not played a lot of football.

‘What we’ve put across to them they seem to have taken on board so hopefully they can take that onto the field tomorrow and get off to a winning start.’ Credit Jersey’s squad emerged with great credit following their 3-1 defeat by Scotland’s impressive national under 16 squad at Springfield just over two weeks ago.

The Island side were committed and well-organised giving the Scots a stern test ahead of their forthcoming international matches.

Kick-off is at 2 pm.

Jersey: Greg Forster, Max Jouan, Matt Brookland, Tom Wigley, Pierce Cummins, Sam Habin, Darren A’Court, Michael Weir, Danny Flynn, Elliott Fernandes, David Kenyon, Jack Boyle, Jason De Andrade, Ricky Figueira, Luke Campbell, Jordan McBride, Jamie Cullen, Declan Sowney, Tim Cupit and Liam Walker.
