Jersey into National League Systems Cup last eight


Jersey moved into the last eight of the National League Systems Cup after a comfortable 1-0 win over the Essex Olympian League on Saturday.

The only goal was scored straight after half-time when Jersey Scottish's Paul Aikten ran onto a brilliant ball from Chris Andrews' defence-splitting ball.

Jersey team manager Jon Welsh said: "It was typical of the play we put on, we had some really good chances today.

"It could have been three or four," he told BBC Jersey.

After defeating an Essex side that won their first round tie 9-2 against Worthing & District League, Welsh said he was now looking forward to the quarter finals.

"It was a fantastic performance and we created some lovely openings, I'm delighted for the players and the staff," he said.

"We can now look forward to a quarter-final tie in a fantastic competition and if we can repeat this sort of performance we'll be ready for anybody."
