Football:Crick returns to fire Scots clear

Crick opened the scoring in a 6-0 rout of newly-promoted Jersey Wanderers, which lifts Scottish three points clear in Coca-Cola Combination Division I after two wins and a draw.

Wanderers, having only played two games, are pushed down to the bottom of the pile on goal difference.

Scottish manager Pat Brennan thought his side took a long time to get the rewards their possession and pressure warranted, with the CI champs only leading 2-0 at the break, with young midfield start Jack Boyle also on target.

With the likes of Mark Brown and Lee Burns still missing from their starting line-up, Scottish pressed on to score through a tremendous Scott Devlin header, another from Crick, a looping header from Ruebin Legge and one from substitute Charlie Franks.

Beeches Old Boys won the all Division II clash against St Lawrence last night, to earn a Willis Cup quarter-final round tie next month against St Martin/SCF or St Paul’s Reserves.

Goals from Andy McKnight, penalty, and Hamlyn Moon earned Beeches a 2-0 victory in the first round match at St Lawrence.

Jersey Scottish Reserves are scheduled to take on Grouville Reserves in a Willis preliminary round match at Les Quennevais tonight, 7.30.

Division I sides Portuguese Club and Trinity clash in a preliminary round of Wheway Cup at Springfield tomorrow night, kick-off at 7.30.
