Jersey team 'dug deep' for gold win as rain fell

Tim Pryor

BBC Sport

Jersey have clinched gold in the men's team tennis event at the Island Games.

Stuart Parker and Mike Watkins guided them to a 2-0 win over hosts Gotland in the final in Slite.

Parker won his rubber 6-1, 6-4 before Watkins wrapped up the title with a 6-4, 7-5 victory.

We targeted this event before we came out here, we knew we were a pretty strong favourite, but it's difficult in these conditions they're really, really tough, but we managed to tough it out... and it was a good win.

Guernsey 2-1 up against Jersey in badminton team final

Guernsey captain pleased with Shetland performance

BBC Radio Guernsey

Simon Geall has praised his side after they beat Shetland 3-0 this afternoon.

Speaking to BBC Radio Guernsey he said Guernsey's more attacking performance was "really pleasing".

The only harsh words he had was for goal scorer and room mate Ross Allen, who kept him up with his snoring last night.

Two years is a long time in football, so you never know what changes, you don't know what type of team you're facing. Every time I've played Shetland in the Island Games they've been a really difficult side to face and to get three points from.
