Jersey's selectors have made two changes to the island squad for the annual cricket inter-insular game against Guernsey on Saturday.

Dean Morrison and Ben Silva have been dropped for the annual clash for Channel Island bragging rights.

Selector Chris Minty's side is made up of those who will play in the World Cricket League tournament in Malaysia.

"This squad have been training together for three weeks now and are young, strong and fit," Minty said.

"The non-availability of a couple of senior personnel is only to be expected with the increasing demands placed upon our key players as a result of international obligations," he added.

Jersey will feel they have the upper hand after beating Guernsey in a play-off in the European Division One Twenty20 tournament earlier in the summer.

"The coach and selectors are pleased to have a committed, young squad, some of whom have experience beyond their years and who will need to stand up and be counted against Guernsey on Saturday, and then in Malaysia later in September," said Minty.

Jersey Squad: Peter Gough (captain), Edward Farley, Ben Stevens, Anthony Hawkins-Kay, Thomas Minty, Charles Perchard, James Faudemer, Samuel de la Haye, Alex Cooke, Paul Connolly, Corey Bisson, Daniel Garton.
