Jersey manager Martin Cassidy has named his squad for next weekend’s Muratti Vase final against Guernsey at Springfield.

St Paul’s midfielder Jack Boyle will captain the side as they try to win back the Vase after a 2-1 defeat at Footes Lane in 2017.

Jersey have been in good form ahead of this year’s clash, winning their three recent friendlies against the Navy FA, Upton Park FC, and the Essex & Suffolk Border League.

The 16 players are drawn from three Premiership clubs; three from JTC Jersey Wanderers, four from St Peter, and nine from St Paul’s, who clinched a fifth straight title at the weekend.

Jersey squad to face Guernsey in the 2018 Muratti Vase final on Saturday 12 May (KO 3:00pm, Springfield):

Euan van der Vliet (St Paul's), Jake Prince (St Peter), Jack Cannon (St Paul's), Jake Baker (St Peter), Karl Hinds (St Paul's), James Queree (JTC Jersey Wanderers), Jay Reid (St Paul's), Luke Campbell (St Peter), Harry Curtis (St Paul's), Calvin Weir (St Peter), Jack Boyle (capt, St Paul's), Michael Weir (St Paul's), Kamen Nafkha (JTC Jersey Wanderers), Craig Russell (St Paul's), Adam Trotter (St Paul's), Danny Birrell (JTC Jersey Wanderers).

Well done to all the players that made the final Muratti squad. To play in a Muratti Vase final is one of the highest accolades for any player in Jersey football. You have all earned your place in this squad, through hard work shown at training and your performances for your local clubs.
