Athletic take on the Army - this week!


Jersey Athletic will face the British Army this week, on Tuesday March 10th in an evening game that will be played under lights on the main pitch at St Peter - kick-off will be at 7pm.

The Army are travelling across on Monday and will hold a training session to acclimatise. The friendly fixture, arranged at short notice after an approach to JRFC, forms part of the Army side's preparations ahead of the annual Inter-Services Championship that takes place in April and May, and more specifically The Babcock Trophy against the Navy that forms part of that competition and will be played at Twickenham on May 9th.

In the opening months of 2015 the British Army have already played both Oxford and Cambridge Universities, as well as Worcester's 'A' team, the Cavaliers.

All Jersey members and supporters are encouraged to come up to the game. Food will be available in the clubhouse for the very reasonable price of £8 - a chilli and rice combination with garlic bread from 6pm, with a cheeseboard to follow.

Pre-booking through would be a bonus to give an idea of numbers, but otherwise there will still be food for late-comers.

The match, believed to be the first time Jersey have played the Army, is part of a 'Military double' this month for Jersey Athletic, who will also be contesting the traditional Wilkes Cup match against the Royal Artillery on Sunday March 22nd.
