Muratti is No 1 target for Culkin
Saturday 29th December 2012, 3:00PM GMT.
THREE months ahead of leading Jersey’s footballers into the next stage of the Uefa Regions’ Cup in San Marino, Island manager Craig Culkin says the Muratti is still the big one he wants to win.
Culkin, who has coached Jersey in two Muratti Vase finals, says he is desperate to regain the Vase having lost it to Guernsey in May at Springfield.
Culkin said: ‘The Muratti is the big one to win. Our players have proved themselves in tournament football in recent seasons but they’ve left themselves wanting in one-off games against Guernsey.
‘We stole the Vase two years ago when we won in Guernsey while last May we let ourselves down badly in our defeat at Springfield.’
