Jersey Bulls have failed to win a league game for the first time as they started the new season with a defeat at Beckenham Town.

Bulls had won 36 consecutive games since they first began playing in 2019 but lost 1-0 at Eden Park.

A penalty early in the second half was enough for Beckenham to take the points, despite playing nearly an hour with ten men following a first-half red card.

Bulls' goalkeeper Euan Van Der Vliet almost grabbed a dramatic last minute equaliser for the visitors but his header went narrowly over the crossbar.

Manager Gary Freeman previously said that Bulls would be beaten in the league this year but he will hope they can get back to winning ways when they welcome fans back to Springfield for their first ever game in the FA Cup on Saturday 7 August.
