Jersey Wanderers beat Grouville 2-1 to go top of Premiership


Jersey Wanderers came from a goal down to beat Grouville 2-1 at Le Boulivot to climb to the top of the Premiership.

Bradley Russell had given Grouville the lead, but Wanderers struck twice in the second half to get all three points.

St Paul's have gone above Grouville into third after a 2-1 win at St Peter.

Jack Cannon and Ben Gallichan scored in the opening three minutes of the second half for St Paul's before Aaron Parkinson set up a nervy finish with a penalty 15 minutes from full-time.

The victory was the club's first ever in the top flight after winning promotion last season.

In the Championship, Trinity's phenomenal goalscoring exploits continued as they beat St John 8-0 to add to last week's 17-2 thumping of Sporting Academics.

They are still seven points clear at the top of the table after recording their sixth successive win.

St Clement stay second after a 1-0 win over Beeches, while First Tower beat Sporting Academics 6-1 at the IJB to remain a point further back in third.

Magpies are still at the bottom despite getting their second point of the season as they drew 1-1 with mid-table St Martin.
