The number of gold was well short of the total Jersey won when they last hosted the Island Games in 1997, when they won 75 gold medals.

Isle of Man were second, Guernsey were third, winning 28 gold medals, while Sark won four medals, including a gold, in shooting.

Alderney failed to get on the podium and have not won a medal since 2005.

Team Jersey chairman Steve Jacobs: "You see the standard of sport has really gone up even since the last Games.

"I was not surprised, but I was pleasantly surprised how well we had done.

"It just shows the strength in depth we have got in the teams and squads in Jersey at the moment."
