How is this historic? United Banks won the cup last year and Les Q won it a few years ago. This isn't anywhere JRA teams haven't been before. Check your facts JEP

Check your facts Rolling. Banks won the Plate in 2012 (3rd Tier trophy), Les Q won the Bowl in 2003 (2nd Tier trophy). No Jersey club ever won the Cup (1st tier).
