Jersey beat Menorca 2-0 in Island Games opener

Two second-half goals secured a 2-0 win for Jersey over Menorca in Group A at the Island Games on the Isle of Wight.

Joe Murphy opened the scoring after 70 minutes at Cowes, with Lucas Parker wrapping up the win for the Channel Islanders late on.

In the other game in the group in the men's competition on Sunday, Rhodes beat Greenland 2-1.

When Jersey won gold in Aland in 2009 they became the first team to win three football golds in Island Games history.
