Northerners beat Jersey Scottish 4-0 to win Upton

Football

Guernsey Priaulx league champions North have won the Upton Park Trophy for a record 17th time after crushing Jersey champions Jersey Scottish 4-0.

All of the goals came in the first half as a header from captain Chris Le Cheminant put North in front.

Simon Tostevin grabbed two goals with Nigel Hutton also scoring for North.

"If it had been 8-0 then I don't think Jersey Scottish would have moaned too much," North first-team coach Ross Cameron told BBC Guernsey.

He added: "We were very strong in defence and did enough to keep a clean sheet in the second half - we're all delighted with the result."

Cameron was also pleased with the way his side approached the match.

"We were so clinical with our finishing and set piece play that we made it count," said Cameron. "It wasn't an easy game but it was certainly a game we deserved to win.

"We've got such a young side that it's about doing the same, we always set out to win the league and then if we can get involved in the Upton then fantastic."
