Jersey Reds are getting ready for back-to-back Siam Cup challenges that will provide the climax to the 2021/22 season.
The Reds and their oldest rivals Guernsey Raiders will face off on successive Saturdays in May as part of moves to catch up with fixtures lost during the Covid pandemic. One of the oldest trophies in rugby, originally presented in 1920, will once again be up for grabs.
Three games took place in Guernsey last November, with the home side lifting the Nash and Ladies Siam trophies while the visiting Reds winning the Siam Cup by the narrowest of margins.
On Saturday May 14th there will be three games at Stade Santander International as follows:
* 10.30am: Nash Cup – Jersey Wanderers v Guernsey Vets
* 12.30pm: Ladies Siam – Jersey Reds Women v Guernsey Ladies
* 3pm: Siam Cup, sponsored by Santander International – Jersey Reds Athletic v Guernsey Raiders
The following Saturday (May 21st), at the Garenne Stand in Guernsey, there will be two matches:
* 12pm: Ladies Siam: Guernsey Ladies v Jersey Reds Women
* 3pm: Siam Cup – Guernsey Raiders v Jersey Reds Athletic
Jersey supporters wishing to make the trip to Guernsey for the games on May 21st will be able to book places on a day-trip that has been arranged by the club with Manche- Îles Express, travelling with the playing squads. The boat leaves St Helier at 8am and then departs St Peter Port for the return journey at 6.50pm. The cost of the return trip is £47 per person, with bookings to be made online at manche-iles.com
Tickets for the 14 May games in Jersey are now available via the tickets section of the Jersey Reds website.
Why not come a chillout in the supporters marquee before the game, A fully stocked bar and food is available, seated and standing tables, on a first come first served basis and a great place to meet the Reds supporters.
