Charity Shield at The Bowl

It's Peel v St. George's

The traditional start to a new Manx Football season takes place at The Bowl on Friday evening.

Premier League champions St. George's play F.A Cup winners Peel in the Eric Fletcher Charity Shield game.

Kick-off is at 7pm.

Tim Glover has more:-

 

Geordies edged the game when the sides met in last year's encounter thanks to a second half strike from Chris Bass Junior.

St. George's have added Furo Davies from Rushen to an already potent selection of forwards.

There have been rumours of unrest out west so it will be interesting to see who Peel manager Steve Falconer is able to field to see if there is any truth in the whispers.
