Craig Culkin becomes new Jersey football manager

Culkin will hope to defend Jersey's Island Games title in the Isle of Wight

Former St Paul's boss Craig Culkin has been appointed as the new Jersey manager, with Jon Welsh set for the number two position.

Culkin, who quit in June as manager of St Paul's, was Jersey's caretaker boss in 2009 and took the side to the gold medal in the Island Games in Aland.

The Upton Trophy winner left the club side for personal reasons.

He will be delegating team responsibilities until Christmas to number two Welsh.

The move means Culkin will be in charge next year for both the Muratti and the defence of the Island Games title.
