Reds captain to join Worcester in summer

Jersey Reds captain Pierce Phillips has agreed a switch to Worcester Warriors at the end of the season.

He will join prop Simon Kerrod in making the move from St Peter to the Premiership side.

Phillips was made captain ahead of the current campaign, but has missed a big chunk of it with a shoulder injury.

It’s disappointing to lose players like Simon and Pierce, but we've known that Aviva Premiership clubs have had them on their radar this season and they deserve the chance to make the move to the next level. I hope they will play leading roles in helping the Reds have a really strong finish to 2016/17 before leaving us.

– Harvey Biljon, Head Coach, Jersey Reds

Meanwhile, the Reds have announced the signing of 21-year-old back Ayron Schramm from South African Super Rugby side The Sharks.

He has joined on a two-year deal and is expected to be available for the visit of Yorkshire Carnegie on Friday night.

Daniel Skipp has been down to their headquarters to see how they've been coping.

Islanders in Guernsey have been giving mixed reactions to calls to tackle so-called pavement surfing.

Deputy Peter Roffey says he has been "overwhelmed" by calls to prevent drivers mounting the kerb.

He thinks the problem has become more prevalent in recent years. Some islanders seem to agree, while others have told ITV News they rarely see it happening.
