Jersey Bulls ready for football season opener on Saturday

Jersey Bulls are getting ready for their first match of the new football season.

It is set to be a memorable occasion for Bulls fans and players as they take part in the Combined Counties League Premier Division South for the first time.

They will face Beckenham Town at Eden Park Avenue in Kent tomorrow (31 July), with kick-off at 1pm.

Manager Gary Freeman says the team cannot wait to get going.

Bulls have a few new faces in the squad this year, but there's one familiar face who makes a return to Springfield.

Lorne Bickley will likely lead the line for Bulls this term having had recent spells at Hartlepool and Kettering Town.

Despite moving up a division the ambition remains the same. Bulls are confident they can achieve successive promotions and keep progressing through the non-league pyramid.

Bulls were promoted to step five of the non-league pyramid in May after a league restructure - having initially missed out on promotion when the last two seasons were declared null and void due to Covid.
