Try scorers: Tom Coutanche 13, Elliott Lockley 8, Alex Hill 6, Will Flemmer &Will Le Heuze 4, Kyran Oakley, Ben Henman, Ben Ward & Ed Jones 3, Jonny Kene, Mark Boarer, Ollie Stockwell 2, Will Cawley, Taylar Chapman, Zac Boudin, Cameron Campbell, Cameron White & Gregor Paton 1

Conversions: Elliott Lockley 9, Cameron Campbell 7, Zac Boudin, Finlay Laing and Ronan Gouyette 4, Ed Jones & Taylar Chapman 2.

20/10/13 Bognor - Win 50-0 The first half saw us run in 10 tries and 5 conversions to lead 60-0.  The second half was much the same with 7 tries and 6 conversions to finish 107-0 albeit that the record will show 50-0 the maximum that can be recorded under league rules. 

Despite the score the game was played in a great spirit which shone through when the whistle was blown early and the sides mixed up for 10 minutes of fun rugby, with all the boys finishing with a smile on their face.

Jersey squad: Ryan Bisson, Sammy Buckley, Brodie Sutton, Ollie Stockwell, Cameron Campbell (5 conversions), Kieran Oakley, Ben Sullivan, Johnny Kene (2 tries), Cameron White, Myles Holmes, Will Cawley (1 try), Alex Hill (2 tries), Mark Boarer (1 try), Zach Boudin, Taylar Chapman (1 try), Tom Coutanche (4 tries), Elliott Lockley (3 tries & 6 conversions), Will Flemmer (1 try), and Will Le Heuze (Captain - 1 try).

17/11/13 Hove - Win 28-10 This was tougher than Bognor and it took a solid effort from our boys to breakdown a stalwart Hove defence.  Eventually after some good rucking the first points went to Jersey 7-0 (Ollie Stockwell, conv Cameron Campbell). Next try from Mark Boarer converted by Finlay Laing 14-0.  Jersey continued attacking with the next try going to Alex Hill conv Cameron Campbell 21-0; effectively game over but Hove nicked back 5 points to make it 21-5 halftime.  The second half saw both sides scoring a try to make the final score 28-10. A much better test for our boys who won well. 

Jersey squad: Harrison Clarke, Ben Henman, Brodie Sutton, Edward Jones, Cameron Campbell (2 conversions), Myles Holmes, Finlay Laing (2 conversions), Alex Hill (1 try), Mark Boarer (1 try), Dominic Le Fondre, Frankie Jones, Thomas Coutanche, Kieran Oakley, George Fraser, William Le Heuze (1 try), Dan Sayers, Alex Heyes, Max Feighan, Ollie Stockwell (1 try) Adam Wood-McGrath.

09/12/13 Chichester - Win 50-0 As the boys faced up for kick-off you could feel that the Jersey team in their new Dominion kit were a cut above.  Indeed some were literally head and shoulders above the opposition. The boys recorded an excellent 62-0 victory.

Jersey squad: Alex Hill, Ben Henman, Brodie Sutton, Edward Jones, Cameron Campbell, Elliott Lockley, Finlay Laing,  Harrison Clarke, Jonathon Kene, Kieran Oakley, Mark Boarer, Myles Holmes,  Ollie Stockwell, Sammy Buckley, Tom Coutanche, William Cawley, William Flemmer, William Le Heuze & Zac Boudin.

12/01/14 Guernsey at home - Win 20-19 An expectant crowd of over 100 gathered around pitch one with only one desire, a Jersey victory, nothing else would do!

Guernsey had the early pressure with Jersey rarely getting out of their own half.  The level of commitment could not be faulted, with strong tackles being made by both sides.  Guernsey kept up the pressure which they converted into a 12-0 lead.  Jersey had some good spells of possession but we let down by poor passing and lack of consistent phases of play.  It was as if the pressure of this must win fixture had spooked them.  However the sheer strength and persistence of the Jersey forwards started to make a difference with Ed Jones making a supreme effort to batter his way over the line to make it 12-5.  But the joy was short lived as Guernsey intercepted the ball, against the run of play and ran almost the full length of pitch to score their 3rd try, which they converted to restore the gap to 12 points score 19-5.  But Jersey were not done and an excellent move saw Tom Coutanche set off on a darting run to score Jersey's 2nd try to make it Guernsey 19 Jersey 10 at half time.

In the second half Jersey stepped up their game and were soon rewarded when Coutanche made a scintillating run from the half way line to jink past the Guernsey players and touch down just inside the line in the Pavilion corner, Guernsey 19 Jersey 15.  Jersey attacked again and again, but Guernsey held firm.  With just 2 minutes to go Jersey got the ball out to William Flemmer who with the crowd baying for a try put his head down and sprinted for the line.  He spun his way through the Guernsey defence to score - at last Jersey were ahead 20-19.  Guernsey came straight back at Jersey but conceded a penalty in Jersey's 22, from which Le Heuze hoisted the ball over the Lord Jersey stand, the final whistle blew and Jersey had done it by just one point!

Whilst perhaps not the most disciplined and fluid of performances by Jersey, their level of intensity, effort and sheer will to win had got them there in the end.  As one of the parents was heard to say "The tension was worse than watching a first team game."

Jersey Squad: Alex Hill, Ben Henman, Brodie Sutton, Ed Jones (man of the match), Cameron Campbell, Elliott Lockley, Finlay Laing, Harrison Clarke, Jonathon Kene, Kieran Oakley, Mark Boarer, Myles Holmes, Ollie Stockwell, Sammy Buckley, Tom Coutanche, William Cawley, William Flemmer, William La Heuze, Zachary Boudin, Sam Boudin, Fraser George and Ronan Gouyette.

20/01/14 Seaford - Win 50-0 the conditions in the first half were awful with Jersey pitched into a gale force wind and torrential horizontal rain.  The combination of wind against a strong Seaford attack saw our line almost constantly under siege.  Our boys fought valiantly but finished over 40 points down.  The second half was very different with our boys totally dominating; their passing in the conditions was superb.  They worked the ball out to the wings and were soon rewarded with 3 quick tries, the tide had turned and we were on top.  Jersey had racked up 29 points to just 3 to totally dominate the 2nd half.  Overall Jersey may have lost the match, but the resolve, sheer effort and never say die attitude of the team was truly outstanding and something the boys should be rightly proud of. 

Before departing we were pleased to tell the boys that we had actually won 50-0, so we were still top of the league.  19 bemused faces looked back - How could this be?  Seaford with a small squad of less than 20 are hard pushed to put out a strong league side, so rather than inflict yet another defeat on them, which would have been no good to either side, it was agreed that we should mix things up.  Seaford gave us the match and in return some of their under 15s bolstered their team.   

To put the match into perspective our boys had played in the hardest game of the season.  Once the under 15s were taken off, Jersey dominated and would undoubtedly have been victorious had both sides been even from the first whistle.  However the bigger result was most certainly the performances of each and every one of our boys who demonstrated outstanding team spirit and sheer effort, for which the coaches gave them well deserved praise.

Jersey Squad: Luke Gardener, Henry Letch, Harrison Clarke, Josh Twohig-Jones, Louis Dean, Zackary Morgan, Max Feighan, Cameron White, Alex Heyes, Taylar Chapman, Sam Hamon, Frankie Jones (captain), Ben Ward, Dominic Le Fondre, Charlie Kibberd, Ryan Bisson, Eoin Lynam, Ronan Gouyette, and Gregor Paton

09/03/14 Hastings and Bexhill - Win 48-5 Jersey dominance saw tries put away by Alex Hill, Ben Henman, Tom Coutanche and Kieran Oakley, 2 of which were successfully converted by Zac Boudin. Hastings and Bexhill scored a try when a defensive error let them in to score just before the end of the half. 

Jersey started the second half strongly with tries from Alex Hill, William Le Heuze and Tom Coutanche.  Ronan Gouyette and Ed Jones converted two of these tries. 

Despite the score line and to the consternation of the coaches; Jersey's decision-making, at times, was not the best.  Whilst there was some strong runs being made by individual players; overlaps of 3, 4 and even 5 men were being ignored and numerous, excellent, chances squandered. 

Jersey Squad: Zach Boudin, Alex Heyes, Alex Hill, Ben Henman, Ben Ward, Cameron  White, Charlie Kiberd, Ed Jones, Frankie Jones, Gregor Paton, Harrison Clarke, Jonathan Kene, Kieran Oakley, Max Feighan, Ronan Gouyette, Sammy Buckley, Tom Coutanche, William Le Heuze, and Zack Morgan

09/03/14 Crawley - Win 50-0 straight from the whistle Jersey put Crawley under pressure with some great patterns of plays.  Despite some valiant defending by Crawley they could not thwart the unrelenting Jersey attack.  The first try went fittingly to birthday boy Elliot Lockley, which was duly converted by Ronan Gouyette.  Ed Jones used his sheer power to break through for Jersey's second try again converted by Ronan.  The confidence and composure of this Jersey side was a pleasure to behold as the ball was expertly worked wide into the hands of a rampaging Will Flemmer for one of his trade mark sprints to the line for a superb try.  Next up another try for the birthday boy Lockley duly converted again by Ronan.  The half was rounded off with a try for Tom Coutanche to make it Jersey 26 Crawley 0.

The second half continued as the first had finished with continued attacking pressure from Jersey.  The next try came from Ben Henman, converted by Finlay Laing.  Another five tries followed, one for Cameron Campbell, a second for Tom Coutanche and Will Flemmer.  Captain Will Le Heuze touched down the tenth try and sheer relentless effort from Ollie Stockwell saw him bulldoze his way to the line for Jersey's eleventh and final try, it was all over 63-0 to Jersey.

This was without doubt the squad's best performance of the season.  Finally the efforts of the coaching team were rewarded with the boys converting  well drilled practise into a superbly crafted and disciplined performance which saw them win through to be worthy champions.  This was a complete team effort by each and every boy - the league was won!

13/04/13 Cobham touring side - Lost 32-7 after the elation of winning the Sussex Division III it was down with a bump for the game against Cobham who were a cut above our boys.  This gave our boys an insight into what they will face as they progress through the leagues.  Without doubt a valuable lesson, we were simply outplayed!

26/04/14 Siam - Lost 10-5 with Guernsey smarting from finishing second to us in the Sussex league this set up a fiercely competitive fixture which saw Guernsey grind out a 10-5 lead at half time, with Alex Hill scoring for Jersey.  A bruising second half ended in stalemate with Jersey going agonisingly close on a number of occasions, but it was not to be this time round with the score remaining at 10-5 to Guernsey who get to keep the trophy this time round.  All of the Jersey squad put in 100% effort with many season best performances.  Over the last 3 clashes there has been just 2 points separating the sides.

Man of the match for Jersey Elliot Lockley  - Sportsmanship Ronan Gouyette.

Squad: Ed Jones, Zac Morgan, Brodie Sutton, Cameron Campbell, Ben Henman, Myles Holmes, Ben Ward, Alex Hill, Mark Boarer, Finley Laing, Kieran Oakley, Tom Coutanche, Elliot Lockley, Jonny Kene, Will Le Heuze, Zac Boudin, Fraser George, Sam Boudin, Ronan Gouyette (captain), Sammy Buckley, Harrison Clarke, Gregor Paton and Charlie Kibberd.

We also had five players (Ryan Bisson, Mark Boarer, Alex Heyes, Finley Laing and Kieran Oakley) mixed in with the under 15s who travelled to France for the Tournoi de Poher in Carhaix, which saw them win one and lose two against some excellent sides.  We will look to repeat this in 2015 when most of our squad will be able to participate.

In conclusion an excellent season in the league tainted with bitter disappointment in the Siam.  Once again the boys have done so well showing great commitment, skill andesprit de corps.  This is all credit to the coaching team of Pat Dean, Dan McAlistair, Paul Carpenter, Paul Letch, Wayne Boschat and Willie Peggie.  Thanks also go to Tommy Butler who assisted with some of the league matches and the Siam Cup.

Finally a massive thanks to the boys, every one of them played a part, be it in the mud bath against Seaford, the magnificent wins in the league or the disappointment against Cobham and in the Siam they have been a credit to themselves and the club.   Thanks of course to all the parents who have been very supportive throughout the season.

Sussex league division two here we come!

Thank you

Discipline: Team discipline is crucial to the overall success of any team endeavour. Not only do disciplined teams perform well on the field, but, if teams are able to maintain good discipline both on and off the field, the overall rugby experience is far more positive for all involved. Everybody takes responsibility for what happens.
