Can you help find Muratti Veterans from the 50's and 60's?

The Jersey FA is looking for Veteran Muratti players who represented Jersey in the annual matches between Jersey, Guernsey and Alderney in the 50’s and 60’s.

They are being invited to take part in the celebrations for the 100th Muratti which will be played at Springfield on May 14th.

We believe there are between 20 to 30 players from that era who are still alive, we hope they are able to join us at the match on the 14th of May, where they will be introduced to the crowd before the game.

– Gavin Fraser JFA Commercial Director.

A Vin d'Honneur will also be organised for the veterans on Friday 13th May, at 11.00 am, the day before the big match.

Jersey suffer heavy defeat against French amateur side

Jersey's footballers lost 8-0 against French amateur side St Malo at St Brelade this afternoon.

The islanders included a number of younger players in their team, but the heavy defeat will come as a blow to Jimmy Reilly's side as they prepare for a home NatWest Island Games this summer.

St Malo are in the top tier of French amateur football and showed their quality as they proved too strong for a youthful Jersey side, moving into a 5-0 lead by half time.

It was only the third game the Reds had played this season, having previously beaten a 26th Army regiment 7-0 and 4-0, and they will now look for some more challenging friendly fixtures before they play Alderney in the Muratti Vase semi-final on the 28th March.
