Jersey to revamp football league structure


Jersey's football leagues will undergo a revamp at the end of the season, with the introduction of a play-off match and an extra team in the top flight.

With nine teams in the Premiership and the Championship, both divisions currently have one club without a game in every round of fixtures.

This season the Premiership's bottom team will go down with two sides coming up and a play-off for the final place.

The teams eighth in the Premiership and third in Championship will play off.

"In order to try to maximise matches we decided to even up the divisions," league official John Treleven told BBC Jersey.
