Eight different Sarnian teams will travel to face their Caesarean counterparts and at the culmination of the programme, Jersey’s clear objective is to earn a 15th straight senior ‘A’ crown.

The Panthers duo of Tiff Gervaise-Brazier and Charlotte Hill will again be taking up captaincy responsibilities, at captain and vice-captain respectively, among a roster of 20 senior netballers named.

As Jersey aim to continue their unswerving dominance of the main match, Guernsey’s ‘B’ team go in having set a more positive precedent.

They pinched the ‘B’ honours last year at Beau Sejour, ending Jersey’s seven-year reign.

A veterans’ squad captained by Anais Flatres will also be on title defence duties.

Patching a major gap evident in last year’s programme is the return of an U18 match, where Holly Langlois will skipper the Sarnians.

The remaining matches span from U11 to U16 and the inter-insulars will take place across the weekend of 28 and 29 March.
