Jersey beat Somerset to make it into Inter-League Cup semis

Jersey Football Combination are into the final four of the Inter-League Cup after a 4-0 win over Somerset County League at Springfield.

Craig Russell put the islanders ahead, Danny Flynn's lob doubling the lead in the 16th minute.

Somerset dominated the early stages of the second half before Chris Andrews and Jamie Savory grabbed late goals.

"I thought all round it was a great shift from our boys," said Jersey boss Craig Culkin.

"The boys did absolutely fantastically and I'm made up for every single one of them.

"This was a big game in our season and I think it's the first time we've been at this stage of the tournament.

"We've now got to fancy our chances in this competition."

The win puts the islanders just two wins away from representing England in the 2012/13 European Inter-League Cup.

Jersey will host either the Lincolnshire League or the Cheshire League in the semis, to be played before the end of March.
