Jersey manager Jimmy Reilly has made nine changes to his squad for their trip to Thamesmead Town on Saturday.

Only eight players who were in the squad for the defeat by Sutton United earlier this month make the trip.

Ex-captain Chris Andrews returns to the squad after missing the Island Games and Muratti because of his studies.

Last season's top-scorer Kieran Lester is also back, while fellow Island Games player Jake Baker returns to face the Isthmian League Division One club.

Current skipper Luke Watson is still unavailable, as are fellow Island Games players Jack Cannon, Jack Boyle and Luke Campbell.

Jersey were knocked out at the group stage of their home Island Games last month.

Jersey Squad: Kieran Lester, Zeljko Martinovic, Ollie Thompson, Nathan Strzelecki, Craig Russell, Steffan Kermin, Chris Andrews, Jake Baker, Sam Dewhurst, Kamen Nafkha, Calvin Weir, Euan Van Der Vliet, Francis Lekimamati, Charlie Payn, Jose Figueira, Rupert Murray, Jason Andrade.
