Football is back in the Isle of Man

Union Mills played RYCOB in a friendly last night. There may have been other games as well.

Competitive football is planned from 1 August, with play offs involving six Div 2 teams to decide who replaces Castletown and Pulrose in the top division.

1 Aug: Union Mills v Onchan, Colby v Foxdale

8 Aug: St Johns v Colby or Foxdale, Ayre v Union Mills or Onchan

Castletown and Pulrose have requested relegation. I don't know if they were in the bottom two places as Full Time no longer shows last season's tables.

Not sure if it's yet possible to travel to the island without a period of quarantine on arrival.

More details on the Isle of Man Today website.
