Cassidy: Jersey's cup performance 'not acceptable'

Football | Published:

ISLAND manager Martin Cassidy was in no mood to mince his words after watching ten-man Jersey throw away the chance to progress in the FA Inter League Cup.

The Football Combination's select XI were dominant in defeat at Springfield – finishing 3-1 down against Kent County League to fall short of another quarter-final appearance.

Cassidy’s men, who enjoyed stacks of possession, conceded all three goals against the run of play and the manager has suggested the position of some squad members may now be under threat.

Kent’s George Latham bagged a quick-fire brace before half-time, and substitute Daniel Hanshaw claimed the third late on to ensure that Adam Trotter’s skilful opener ended up being mere consolation.

Home captain Luke Campbell was given a straight red card for allegedly throwing a limb towards an opponent in the second half.

‘We need to look at what the next step is going to be for senior football, because that’s not acceptable, to play like that,’ said Cassidy at full-time. ‘It’s just not good enough.'

Asked if any positives could be gleaned from the performance, Cassidy responded: ‘No. None.

'It’s time for big changes now.'
