FIONA MACKINNON and teenager Ella Brennand have been added to Jersey’s women’s squad for the NatWest Island Games in Gotland.

Following the previously reported withdrawal of prolific striker Catarina Andrade, and that of pacey winger Amy Brown, Jodie Botterill and Dan Seviour have now acted after being confirmed as joint-interim coaches for the Games on 24-30 June.

Gotland will represent a fourth Games appearance for 2015 gold medallist MacKinnon, while Brennand, who featured against Sheffield United Ladies last month, is set for her debut at the week-long biennial tournament.

Botterill said: ‘We’re really lucky with Ella because she can play in a number of positions. It was a no-brainer really, it’s common sense to put her in.’
