ST BRELADE, fresh from their surprise victory over Jersey Wanderers, proved a tough nut for title-chasing St Paul’s to crack – with their Island skipper Luke Watson hitting the only goal of the game late in the second half.

It was a fascinating game, well refereed by a late substitute, Charlie Browne of St Paul’s – seven times the Jersey Football Combination’s referee of the year. St Brelade started well and could have scored twice in the first half. Both opportunities arose from Bradley Rimeur free kicks on the right, in similar vein to their Dan Romeril goal against Wanderers last week.

The first, after 14 minutes, was met by Aaron Scott at the far post and his header clipped the top of the post from ten yards out.

The second, just six minutes later, was only parried by St Paul’s goalkeeper Jordan Le Guyader down the middle of the penalty area, but a defender cleared the danger.

But these were rare chances as both defences were resolute.
