Jersey boss Craig Culkin has named an 18-man squad to represent England in the Uefa Regions Cup in San Marino next month.

Ben Gallichan is also included but teenager Jay Giles misses out because he is too young under tournament rules.

They beat other leagues from around the country and overcame the Isle of Man in the final in April.

Jersey, in the guise of England, will face amateur representative sides from Northern Ireland (Eastern Region), Ireland (Leinster and Munster) and the hosts in Intermediary Round Group Six.

The winners of the group will qualify for the final stage of the competition, something which England's representatives have never achieved.

Tournament organisers have confirmed San Marino's main stadium, Stadio di Serravalle, will be used for three of the six matches.

Jersey's clash with the hosts will be played there just 12 days before England's World Cup qualifier against the San Marino national side at the same venue.

There will be live coverage of the Uefa Regions Cup Group Six on BBC Radio Jersey.
