Football | Published:

JERSEY BULLS reached a league record-equalling 26 consecutive wins at home to Bedfont & Feltham on Saturday, although the game was not as one-sided as the 3-0 scoreline suggests.

Goals from Jonny Le Quesne, Zeljko Martinovic and Sol Solomon took the Island side to within two wins of promotion from Combined Counties League Division I and manager Gary Freeman welcomed a week away from the usual cakewalks his team have enjoyed this season

‘I really enjoyed it from the sideline,' he said. 'The lads knew they were in a game. Hopefully it will be a sign of things to come when we play up next year and we have to work for our wins.

‘I thought in the first half it was evenly fought [but] in the second half we stepped it up a little bit up and that made the difference in the end. I enjoyed the way our players played and it was a pleasing performance all round.'

Adam Trotter turned in a man-of-the-match performance for Bulls to keep Bedfont at bay.

‘It was difficult in midfield,’ said Trotter. ‘They were worked hard, they always pressed you so in the second half we pushed forward more and used the width where I thought Zeljko [Martinovic] and Sol [Solomon] were especially good today.’
