The Jersey Bulls Mascot has been named as 'Beany'.

Following 230 entries from eight primary schools the Jersey Bulls 'Name the Bull' competition has closed.

The winning name was chosen by Alfie Morin, aged 10, from Mont Nicolle School.

Shortlisting the entries was a really fun exercise. It’s clear Jersey’s primary school children have a great sense of humour. We had suggestions like Toro Toro, Billy, Bruno and even Sam.

Following a really tight call, we voted for the name Beany. We believe Beany is a great suggestion. It’s a nod to our local heritage and a great conversation starter for visitors coming to Jersey to watch their teams play ours.
