Jersey Scottish: Pat Brennan impressed by depleted side

Jersey Scottish are eight points ahead of their biggest rivals St Paul's

Jersey Scottish manager Pat Brennan says he is impressed with how his side is doing, despite having missing several players because of injury.

The Scots have won eight league games out of eight this season and are top of Jersey's Premiership after beating Portuguese Club 3-2 on Saturday.

Ex-Players of the Year Jack Boyle and Ben Gallichan are among five absentees.

"Considering the players we've got missing I think we're doing really well," Brennan told BBC Radio Jersey.

Scottish are seven points ahead of nearest rivals Jersey Wanderers, with reigning champions St Paul's in third place.

"We've rallied together and there's a good atmosphere in the dressing room," added Brennan.

"Sometimes when you've got a squad of 19 or 20, people feel out of it, but the guys that are all in the dressing room are all part of it and they've all got great chances of staying in the squad.

"There probably will come a time when Jack can play and Gally can play, but in the meantime these guys have given themselves a chance of hopefully winning something."
