Our reporter Oscar Pearson has been keeping us updated with the Guernsey v Saaremaa football this evening.

However, the big question is does this picture of the Saaremaa keeper including Oscar's shadow and phone count as a selfie.

Really we're only throwing it out there so we have an excuse to use this awesome picture.

Fewer goals cost us - Cassidy

Tim Pryor

BBC Sport

Jersey men's football manager Martin Cassidy said his side needed to be better in front of goal to qualify for the semi-finals.

His side beat Orkney 3-0 this afternoon, but rivals Menorca put six past Alderney to qualify by a single goal on goal difference.

However, Cassidy felt hard done by after his side remained unbeaten in the tournament.

We're really disappointed because this team was good enough to go all the way, but you sometimes don't always get what you deserve.

The father of Clinton Pringle, the three-year-old boy who died after being knocked over by a van in Tunnel Street, St Helier, a year ago today, says walking in his last footsteps was "very difficult".

Michael Pringle said he had never been to Jersey until shortly after the death of his son. He said the first thing he did when coming to Jersey was to follow his last movements.

I walked through the passageway he walked on the day. It is my first memory and will always be my overwhelming memory of Jersey.

Michael PringleFather

He was in Jersey to mark the first anniversary of the accident. Mr Pringle said every time he comes back he goes back to the street and the passageway where Clinton was hit by the van.

Michael Pringle, the father of the three-year-old boy who died after being knocked over by a van in St Helier a year ago today says it has been "an emotional and difficult year" for the family.

He was in Jersey to mark the anniversary of Clinton Pringle's death. They released green balloons and left toys and flowers at the location of the crash.

It is surreal what’s happened to us, there is no sense. It’s left us raw, we feel worse now we know the details of what’s happened. It’s reopened an old wound and left us with another on top.
