The Jersey FA are delighted to announce the forthcoming visit of Queen's Park Rangers to Jersey.
Having the opportunity to play a team of the quality of QPR Ladies FC is a great opportunity for their women.
It is always a challenge to find opposition to play Jersey's representative teams. It is important for their teams to be able to play competitively as often as possible and having the opportunity to extend and test our teams against good opposition can only benefit the development of the island's managers, coaches and players. The added bonus for the women of playing at Springfield under the lights on an excellent playing surface will make the occasion a little more special.
Tony Hoyland, Jersey Women's Team Manager commented: "Since the last game between our teams, QPR have played and trained consistently each week whilst we have dispersed into our respective league teams. This should not deter from the standards we set ourselves as a representative team in attitude and expectations for a performance that will continue to display the pride in which the players have when pulling on the Jersey shirt. We set out to win every game but whatever the result we will enjoy the experience and play with the unique camaraderie that make us the Jersey Ladies Football Representative Team."
Martino Chevannes, QPR manager, said: "This will be our second visit to the island of Jersey following our extremely worthwhile and successful training camp there during our pre-season preperations. We were warmly received in Jersey and the accommodation, training facilities and hospitality provided by the Jersey FA were second to none.
"The trip gave us the opportunity to spend good quality time training with the squad of players over a prolonged period as well as being a great team bonding exercise in a very beautiful and different environment away from any distractions, with the added bonus of two very competitive games that were played against the Jersey Women's representative side.
"Plans are already in place with the Jersey FA for a similar exercise next summer as an integral part of our pre season preperations. I would highly recommend using the island as a training base to all clubs in mainland England.
"Looking ahead to the forthcoming game on the 3rd November, we cannot wait to return to the island and are under no illusions that the game will be anything other than another tough and competitive fixture against a Jersey side full of players who would not be out of place playing in the FA Women's Premier League.
"I would urge everyone in Jersey to come out on the night and give their support to what will be a highly entertaining game of football."
The game takes place at Springfield on Thursday 3 November (7pm). Admission is £3 adults or £1 children and senior citizens.
