A former island footballer is setting up a 'Parishes of Jersey' team to join Confia - the Confederation of Independent Football Associations.

It organises tournaments for small nations which are not recognised by the sport's traditional governing bodies, including the World Football Cup which took place in London this summer.

James Scott, who played for Jersey in the Muratti, wants to see the island's senior players given a more competitive games programme.

The Jersey FA has arranged several friendlies for its representative side over the last year, but saw its Uefa membership bid rejected in February.

Last month Conifa told ITV News it would welcome an application from Jersey.
