Another fantastic day for Jersey Volleyball as their four teams were able to repeat the whitewash result of two years ago, crushing their Guernsey opponents in all games. Jersey dropped only one set in  the four matches as they totally dominated the play. Play started with the Ladies B game which Jersey won 25-22 25-15 25-18, a strong display from the experienced squad.Player of the match: Ellen Parker (J) The mens B, with a large average age difference to the young Guernsey team were also superb in their play winning 25-19 25-16 25-13. Player of the match: Paul Gartshore (J) The usually highly contested Ladies A match, historically a Guernsey dominance started shakily, before Jersey took control of events. The three set result was a superlative show as they regained the trohpy with a 25-19 25-12 25-22 crushing win. Player of the match = Julie Elmy (G) So it came to the final game with no pressure on the Jersey A Men, no sets dropped so far!! An extremely close first set was nailbiting stuff which the crowd loved; an epic 29-27 set to Jersey’s favour. Guernsey replied and were desperate to win a set, and that they did 25-19. Jersey were not to be downhearted though and rebounded to win the next two sets 25-22 25-17. Player of the match = Mick Toal (J) Once again an excellent day for volleyball, especially for Jersey! An elated President, Paul Adamson, a little shellshocked “This is unbelievable, I really didnt think after the result of two years ago that I would see this result for Jersey again. I am so proud of all the teams and the coaches for representing Jersey Volleyball so wonderfully. This truely is a marvellous day that everyone can be elated with….fantastic.
Walkers will go top of the Insurance Corporation Mixed League with a game in hand, if they beat Peter Green Builders on Sunday. PGB had been top but will slip further down the league unless they beat the veterans who have won the title for several years. In the ladies league, 2e2 Tigers meet Jersey Juniors and HLB Jackson Foxes meet Jacksons Jets, and in the men’s league Astros take on the Island Ladies.
