Jersey are through to the last four of the England Hockey Men's Tier 2 Championships for the first time after knocking out the holders.

They beat Blackheath & Elthamians 2-1 away from home thanks to early goals from Sam Dunstan and captain Tom Millar.

The hosts pulled one back before the break but missed a penalty stroke in the second-half as Jersey held on to book their place in the semi-finals.

They will now face either Sheffield University Bankers or Repton at Les Quennevais on Sunday 31 March, in what will be their first home game in this season's competition.

It should be a huge occasion. We enter this tournament because we want to play competitive games of hockey against top teams. We've reached the semi-final so we're assured of playing a really top side, and the fact that we get to do that at home in front of our home crowd is going to make it even more special.

– Tom Millar, captain, Jersey Men's Hockey
