Jack Boyle named Jersey Premiership player of the year

Former Southampton midfielder Jack Boyle has been named Jersey's Premiership player of the year.

Boyle, who helped Jersey Scottish to the title, was the division's top scorer with 15 goals.

He was handed the award at a ceremony on Tuesday night, beating off the challenge of fellow nominees Adam Pepper (Trinity) and goalkeeper Craig Fletcher (Jersey Scottish).

"It's good to win ahead of two great players," Boyle told BBC Radio Jersey.

"I thought 'Fletch' would have won it, I thought he had a great season for us in goal.

"Although Trinity got relegated, Adam is a class act and who knows who he'll go on to play for.

"I'm just made up that I won it, it's nice to win the trophy."
