CENTRAL defender Kevan Crowell popped up to score a late goal to secure Trinity a

3-2 first round Trinity Shield victory last night at Les Quennevais.

St Martin were on the receiving end of Trinity’s first win in the annual inter-parish competition for over a decade as young Connor Mallet notched a brace for the winners and Matt Westwood likewise for the losers.

Trinity stand-in manager Ramsay Cudlipp said: ‘It was a close game and a young and fit St Martin team probably had more of the ball, but defensively I thought we had the edge.

‘Tim Corson also impressed in goal for us and had it gone to extra time I think we would have struggled.

‘Unfortunately we lose two players tomorrow for the St Clement game, because they are returning to England, but we are still looking forward to the game.'
