It could mean a return to Jersey for Stevenage striker Kurtis Guthrie, who launched his professional career after playing for St Clement and Trinity.

The newly formed Bulls start life in the Combined Counties League next season and manager Gary Freeman is looking forward to the challenging programme.

Stevenage chief executive Alex Tunbridge said: “We are delighted to be able to secure this fixture and support Jersey Bulls in the launch of their new club.” Stevenage have been given an allocation of 150 tickets in the main stand. Tunbridge added “We hope that the advanced notice of this fixture will enable as many supporters as possible to take up the opportunity to travel to the island in July.”

The match will take place at Springfield Stadium on Saturday 6th July (3pm KO). For ticketing details and please contact info@bulls.je.

Gary Freeman, manager of Jersey Bulls said, as quoted by ITV: I think it’s very exciting for everyone involved with the club. There’s been a lot of work going on in the background to get the club to where they are, and to launch it on a day against professional opposition, is great for us as players and coaches, just to challenge ourselves at that level. I’m hoping the island will really come out and support us. There’s more and more football that’s starting to come out, there’s been a good league campaign this season, the games at the weekend were well supported, so it would be great if we can get all of them down to Springfield and make a big occasion of it. I know Stevenage will bring a few fans across themselves, so hopefully it will be a really good atmosphere and really good way to kick off the season.
