Parishes of Jersey: Island side beat Chagos Islands but lose to Yorkshire

Parishes of Jersey celebrate a goal against Chagos Islands
Parishes of Jersey's win over the Chagos Islands was their second victory in three Conifa matches

Parishes of Jersey suffered mixed results in their first tournament.

The island's Confederation of Independent Football Associations (Conifa) side lost 1-0 to hosts Yorkshire before beating Chagos Islands 9-2 in the Heritage Cup.

Broadie Litchfield's 91st-minute winner saw Jersey lose to Yorkshire.

But they came back in style as Kieran Lester and teenager Tom Harris scored hat-tricks while Karl Hinds got two to beat 10-man Chagos Islands.

Jersey's bid for Uefa status was rejected in February and a group of islanders formed a side to join Conifa instead.

The matches come after the Parishes of Jersey made their debut at Conifa level last October when they beat Yorkshire 2-1 at home.
