Sports funding slashed for islanders
Jersey's States are making huge cuts to funding sport in the island.
The grant, which was £176,000, has been slashed to £38,000 for this year.
It means sportsmen and women will have to find another way to pay to compete off island.
The Sports Council says it will have devastating results.
Hugh Raymond from the Sports Council said: "The biggest problem is I don't think that the majority of our States members know how important sport is. They play lip service to it but sometimes do they really know what sport does for the island.
"The whole excitement of taking children off, taking teams off, taking players off and also what is brings to island, because not only are we going out but we're also bringing teams in, so the whole island is affected by spending, tourism, hotels, car hire, it's all part of what I would say a financial reward for the island."
Around 40 sports will be affected including tennis, netball, swimming and basketball.
