St Lawrence beat Grouville to claim Trinity Shield

St Lawrence celebrate with the Trinity Shield
It's now eight Trinity Shields for St Lawrence, with one shared in 1935

St Lawrence have won Jersey's Trinity Shield with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Grouville at Springfield.

Marc Nightingale gave Grouville the lead with an early goal, before Ross Crick levelled things up with an equaliser on the stroke of half-time.

The winner for St Lawrence came 11 minutes into the second half, as Crick headed home to give his side the lead.

St Lawrence boss Peter Flambard told BBC Jersey: "I'm made up for the boys, we played the best stuff tonight."

The victory was the first time St Lawrence have won the Shield since 1989.

Flambard continued: "We had a nervous first five minutes, but other than that I thought we deserved to win it at the end of the day.

"We gave a few silly things away when we were under pressure in the second-half but our keeper's not really had too much to do at the end of the day.

"It is a worthwhile competition and we'll be back next year hopefully to defend it."
