Gary Freeman's side has scored 52 goals and conceded just five in 13 league games

Jersey Bulls manager Gary Freeman says the squad he named on Saturday shows how strong the islanders are.

New signing Harry Curtis was an unused substitute as Jersey beat Dorking Wanderers Reserves 5-0 to register their 13th successive league win.

"Harry and James Carr didn't get on today which highlights how competitive it is," Freeman told BBC Jersey.

"We had others not playing too, such as captain James Queree, but Jack Griffin came in and did fantastic."

A brace from Fraser Barlow, who led the line in place of Daryl Wilson who started on the bench, and singles from Luke Campbell, Harry Cardwell and Sol Solomon saw the Bulls maintain their 100% record.

Freeman recalled top-scorer Karl Hinds to his side after the forward finished serving a three-match ban for a red card.

"It was a big decision even up to the morning. I think he showed again what he brings us, linking the play well. He is important to us," he said.

The win cemented the Bulls at the top of the Combined Counties Division One table, with the club 10 points clear of nearest rivals Farnham Town, who have a game in hand.
