Bulls on the charge in a three-win week
A Sol Solomon brace either side of half-time was enough for the Bulls to claim a 2-1 victory on Tuesday night as they climbed to seventh in the league with a number of games in hand on the teams above them.
The victory gave the Bulls nine points out of a possible nine from last week after previously overcoming challenges from Sheerwater and Badshot Lea.
Freeman said: “The games got dense and fast, and with a number of injured players we had to rotate. It’s great that we got as many points as possible last week and it is a testament to the depth. and the resilience of our team and the players who have entered have shown that they can play for us at this level.
“Farnham and Badshot Lea are the best teams in this division and they provided us with two tough away games. But to come away with nine points is great and we hope that can serve as a springboard to start in the league and help us continue to climb in the standings.
Freeman’s side were boosted by the news this week that the club’s top scorer this season, Sol Solomon, have decided to stay in Jersey after initially leaving the island for the University of Liverpool.
And it was Solomon who made the difference on Tuesday night.
Freeman said: “From a selfish point of view, it’s great for us that Sol stays on the island. He gives us that offensive threat, as you saw with his number of goals this season, and yesterday. evening it again proved to be vital.
