Jersey's women won the inter-island football tournament on home soil thanks to a penalty shoot-out triumph over the Isle of Man in the final.

Jade Burden's powerful effort gave the visitors the lead before Welsh international Jodie Botterill struck from long range to pull her team level.

Catarina Alves put Jersey ahead but Burden's second levelled matters again.

Both sides had chances to win it but Jersey claimed the 3-2 sudden-death victory.

Both had won their semi-finals 5-1 the previous day, with the Isle of Man overcoming Guernsey, and the hosts beating a Jersey Caesarean select side.

The Caesareans were 3-2 winners in the third-fourth play-off match.
