Jake Prince netted a last-gasp winner as Jersey beat rivals Guernsey 1-0 to reclaim the Under-18 Muratti title.

Prince got between two defenders to fire in an excellent finish in the closing stages, dispatching a cross from substitute Josh Coutanche.

Guernsey won last year's match on home turf, their only victory in the annual match since 2012.

"We owed them one from last year, so we can't really ask for much more," said Jersey man of the match Dan Birrell.

The men's Muratti final will be played on 13 May, though the women's match will not go ahead this year.
