Jersey face Champions in B&I Cup

24/06/2014

The make-up of the pools for the 2014/15 British & Irish Cup has been announced, with Jersey facing reigning champions Leinster 'A', Championship rivals Plymouth Albion and a Welsh qualifier in pool 5.

A total of 20 teams (12 GKIPA Championship, four Irish and four Welsh) will contest this season's B&I following confirmation that the Scottish will not take part in 2014/15.

The tournament will feature all six pool games played before Christmas in two blocks of three, with quarter finals in January, semi-finals in March and the final scheduled for the Easter weekend in early April.

The qualifying Welsh side, referred to as 'Wales 3', will start the competition with a trip to Jersey on the weekend of October 10-12, after which the Islanders travel to Dublin. Exact match dates and KO times are not yet confirmed, and it's possible there may be departures from the conventional Saturday afternoon slot for both home and away games. Confirmation of exact times will be issued as soon as possible. Supporters should make allowances for the potential range of kick-off times if they are seeking to make travel arrangements before this confirmation is available.
