4-match Northern League returns after 2 years

Team Isle of Man has come second in the fourth and final match of the Northern League.

The Manx side was leading throughout most of the event at Witton Park in Blackburn by around 30 points.

However, after issues with the relay races at the end of the day, team IOM  ended up runners up by just 4 points.

Individually, multiple athletes got themselves new Personal Bests during the event - it's the first Northern League competition back after a 2-year absence.
