On Saturday 18th March, Guernsey will travel to Jersey for the 2017 edition of the annual Under 18 Junior Muratti fixture, which was first played in 1922.
Guernsey will be looking to retain the London Channel Islanders Society Trophy that they claimed after a deserved 2-1 win in the 2016 match played at Northfield following goals from Martin Savident and Robbie Legg. That win was one of only three in the past ten years for Guernsey, and Jersey will likely go into the match as favourites, particularly having already won a match between the two teams earlier in the season in the FA County Youth Cup.
As part of the preparations for this match, current Under 18 Manager, Martin Scott, has again seen his squad participate in the Stranger Cup and has named a strong squad that includes a number of players who played in the 2016 match. The full squad is:
Christian De Carteret
Ben Le Tocq
Kick-off at Springfield Stadium is 2.00pm.
