EVEN for a football club as used to success as St Paul’s are, their weekend was one to remember.

As expected, Saints’ men’s and women’s teams retained their status as Island champions, while their men’s reserves went three points clear at the top of Division I. Even their top junior side registered a 4-3 win away to St Peter to draw level on points at the top of U18 Division I.

Saturday’s 1-1 Premiership draw for the men at St Peter would have given them the Jersey Football Combination crown, for a record-equalling fourth time in a row, even if closest rivals Scottish had not crashed to defeat against Trinity.

Their ladies went one better on Sunday, making it five titles in a row with a 7-1 victory away to Grouville at Le Boulivot. Captain Eve Watson led the celebrations after they came from behind to win, with a hat-trick each from youngster Megan Wood and star striker Catarina Andrade.
