JERSEY BULLS coasted to another win on Saturday to improve their record to ‘23 and 0’ and maintain hopes of sealing promotion before March.

Two goals in the first three minutes all but finished their latest Combined Counties League Division One game off before it had even started and, until a late flurry of goals in the last ten minutes, there was little to report in between.

‘We were a little stop-start today,’ admitted assistant manager Kevan Nelson, reflecting on the breezy win over Chessington & Hook United at Springfield.

‘We played well in patches. Then it would die off. But you can’t complain with 6-0. We were a little bit off it but we’re going to have fits and bursts like this.’

Given the ease that Bulls are winning a lot of their matches in their debut season, you could forgive them moments of complacency. But Nelson dismissed the idea that it is hard to keep motivated during a match that is won with 87 minutes still to play.

‘All the players have got their own personal standards, as we have as a team, and very rarely does it slip below them,’ he added.

‘These players want to perform in every game. Our work rate’s been good throughout the season and the quality has been there too.’

Teenager Sol Solomon was a particular stand-out in this one-sided affair, with the young forward scoring his first hat-trick for the club.
