FC Isle of Man facing waiting game over league season

Skipton Cup fixtures were postponed over border restrictions

FC Isle of Man says it's waiting on decisions beyond its control as the club aims to prepare for the first league season.

'The Ravens' had to postpone the Skipton Cup tournament with Guernsey FC this summer, until 2022, due to border restrictions on both islands.

The team will compete in the North West Counties Football League (NWCFL) Division One South for the upcoming campaign which could start on 31 July. 

But questions remain over how fixtures can be fulfilled if certain travel restrictions remain in place.

Director of Football Paul Jones explains what might have to happen:

The club's fixtures for the upcoming season and season ticket applications are expected to be released in a few weeks time.
