JERSEY SCOTTISH boss Pat Brennan believes the Premiership title will remain with St Paul’s for at least another season after witnessing his team lose 2-1 to the defending champions at Springfield last night.

The Scots, with several key players out injured, took an early lead through Barry Keith, but Saints bossed the remainder of the tie and goals from Kieran Lester and Cav Miley ensured the league leaders added another three points to their tally.

St Paul’s now have a five-point lead over second-placed Scottish, but the men in yellow also have three games in hand.

‘No chance, it’s gone,’ conceded Brennan when asked if he felt any team could catch the runaway leaders.

‘Let’s play the games, enjoy the football and make these young boys we have in our team become better players for the experience. We might finish second, they’ll learn from the experience and we’ll see what we do next season.’
