Team Jersey has confirmed that 28 athletes will represent the island at this summer's Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

Four new inclusions have been announced as part of the final group.

The quartet of teenagers hoping to bring home medals are swimmers Jack Allan, Lily Scott and Australia-based Ollie Brehaut, and 18-year-old cyclist Zack Hamon.

The Games will start on 28 July 2022 and run until 8 August.
