Jersey have announced 33 competitors in their Commonwealth Games squad to head out to Delhi in October.

The island will be represented in eight different sports, including archery for the first time.

The archery team will be represented by Lucy O'Sullivan and Michael Coward, with Judy O'Sullivan as team manager.

Jersey are also sending their largest support team of any Commonwealth Games including four doctors because of increased risk of disease.

Jersey Commonwealth Games Association secretary general Alan Cross said a special development fund has helped the island side.

I think it is pretty certain that if they are selected for England that they will choose to compete for England

He told BBC Jersey: "This is probably the best organised team in terms of preparation we have ever had leaving the island."

Jersey will be competing in archery, athletics, badminton, cycling, lawn bowls, squash, shooting and swimming.

They are hopeful of doing well in a number of sports including archery, lawn bowls and swimming through Ian Black.

Cross said: "We've heard excellent reports of Ian Black with his work down in Perth, he has got a couple of island records."

Jersey will also be sending a strong badminton contingent, although two of the island's best medal hopes could be unavailable because of a possible England call-up.

Mariana Agathangelou and Elizabeth Cann will find out this week whether they will play for Jersey or England in Delhi.

Cross said: "I think it is pretty certain that if they are selected for England that they will choose to compete for England, which is a shame for our point of view but understandable."
