Team Jets 'second best' in defeat by Dudley Leisure

Team Jets coach Linda Andrews admitted her side were "second best" as they lost 51-37 to mid-table Dudley Leisure in Premier League Three.

It was the Jersey side's second successive defeat after losing 36-30 at Cumberland the previous week, leaving them in third place in the division.

"We were definitely second best today," Andrews told BBC Radio Jersey.

"All over the court we were running after them and normally we try and dictate areas."

Andrews believes a lack of competitive matches was a problem for her players.

The Team Jets squad do not play in Jersey's local league, and so have had just 13 games this season.

"The girls aren't playing regularly in the league. Is this loss a consequence to us not playing regular matches and getting that court time?

"I'm sure most of Dudley's girls play, not just in this league, but in other leagues as well," she said.
