Match Report

Mid table Redhill were the visitors for Jersey’s last home match of the season. Jersey had won 4-0 at Redhill early in the season and were now assured of third place but were still a dozen points behind second placed Badshot Lea. Redhill would finish somewhere between 9th and 12th with a current record of 15-4-17 59-79.

U.K. Supporters Player of the Season, Frank Tobin, was not available, nor was Adam Trotter who must have been close to the overall title which had gone to top scorer Lorne Bickley. They were replaced by Ben Le Rougetel, which moved captain James Queree to “right back”, and Joe Kilshaw respectively. The third change to the previous line-up saw Sammy Henia-Kamau relegate Fraser Barlow to the bench where he was joined by Kamen Nafkha, Miguel Carvalho and Sammy Sutcliffe.

On a bright sunny (14C) afternoon Redhill kicked off attacking the Robin Hood end but it became duller with heavy rain arriving in the second half.

Jersey started brightly and in the first minute Nathan Boamah tipped a Luke Watson header on to the bar. Henia-Kamau forced home the rebound only to be offside. The first goal soon arrived when Henia-Kamau on the right put in a cross that deflected off a defender and Francis Lekimamati deftly glanced a header in to the left corner.

Bickley tried a forty-yard lob with Boamah out of goal but although the right strength it went wide of the left post. Henia-Kamau, Bickley and Lekimamati all went close with the latter’s flick hitting Boamah and going for a corner. Lekimamati took it and although Watson missed it in the centre Bickley stuck out a foot at the far post to volley home.

Le Rougetel and Jonny Le Quesne also went close before a strong run down the left by Jay Giles set up Bickley five yards out for his second of the afternoon. The break arrived with Redhill having conceded three and also losing two players to injuries.

Just after the hour a Lekimamati corner found Luke Campbell at the far post. His header hit the arm of Marcus Travers who had jumped with him and a “soft” penalty was awarded which Campbell put bottom right as Boamah went the other way.

With the game safe Jersey made a triple substitution and one of them, Carvalho, broke down the right and from the byline found Bickley for a tap in for his hat-trick.
Five minutes later Bickley should have become Jersey’s first scorer of four in a game when having rounded Boamah and with the goal at his mercy hit the left post.

The sixth goal came with quarter of an hour to go. Another penalty, this time clear cut as Boamah rugby tackled Barlow and the crowd baying for his dismissal. Only a yellow followed and with both Campbell and Giles having already been substituted it was left to Queree to take it. He went bottom left as Boamah guessed wrongly. A bad day for Redhill who finished with ten men after Adam Neale limped off after 84.
