Trinity Shield: St Mary pull out after failing to raise team

St Brelade

St Mary have pulled out of Jersey's annual Trinity Shield tournament for the second successive year.

The island's least populated parish has again been unable to raise enough players to form a team.

It means St Ouen will automatically go through to the quarter-finals to take on St Clement.

St Brelade are the reigning champions of the competition, which sees players represent the parish where they were either born or reside in.
