There was a special arrival through Jersey airport yesterday - a piece of football silverware.
Jersey has won the interleague cup after a combination XI thrashed West Cheshire League 5-1 in the final at St George's Park on Liberation Day.
Sol Solomon scored a brace. Jake Prince, Luke Campbell, and Luca Margaroli were the other scorers.
Happy Liberation Day! 🇯🇪 pic.twitter.com/ETVy9kxzsq— Jersey Football Association 🇯🇪 (@JerseyFA) May 9, 2021
The players were greeted by the Covid 19 swab team with signs congratulating them on their victory.
The trophy is back in Jersey! Many thanks to all the @GovJersey COVID team at Jersey airport for the amazing welcome and the swift testing of the players and staff on their return👌🏻 pic.twitter.com/01B3VqcppH— Jersey Football Association 🇯🇪 (@JerseyFA) May 9, 2021
It's the first time the JFA has won the trophy since beating the Isle Of Man Football League 2-1 in 2012.
What a brilliant team performance - well played lads! 🇯🇪 pic.twitter.com/DxmcS2wgE9— Jersey Football Association 🇯🇪 (@JerseyFA) May 9, 2021
