JS Juniors - Jersey

As part of our commitment to young people in sport, in 2018 we took up the sponsorship of a new Jersey football team, JS Juniors, for which our colleague Pat McConnell is a coach. The team fancied a trip across the water to play some Guernsey teams and thanks to a well-timed Condor special offer, around 150 players and parents came from Jersey and one game grew into a tournament. Guy Hardhill found himself reffing for three hours straight and Katrina spent the morning managing social media, liaising with the media and handing out 150 goodie bags, ably assisted by her daughter Caitlin aged seven who was happy with her pay of £5 and fish and chips for lunch!

In May 2020 the team had planned to travel to Italy to play in a youth tournament organised by Serie A club, Juventus. Unfortunately this has had to be cancelled, but hopefully the players will have the chance to go in 2021.
