Big prize on offer in pub football event

Pub and business five-a-side football teams in the Isle of Man are being offered the chance to play against former internationals Fabien Barthez, Henrik Larsson, Emmanuel Petit, Edgar Davids and Gianfranco Zola.

That's the eventual prize on offer in the Carlsberg Pub Cup tournament, which starts with the local Heron and Brearley competition, due to kick off early next month. The winning team will go on to the regional finals, after which the grand final beckons at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium.

The free competition is open to all 43 managed houses across the Island and local businesses, with a total of 64 places available.

Heron and Brearley project and events manager Cosmo Currey says there's plenty of interest in what he hopes will the Isle of Man's largest five-a-side event:
