League and cup ties planned over the next three days (Fixtures: 16-18 Apr)

Canada Life Men's Premier League and DPS Ltd. Division 2 action is set to take place tonight (16 April), kicking-off a busy midweek schedule of fixtures across the divisions.

Tuesday evening will see four fixtures held in the top flight, which will include league leaders Peel making a trip to Glencrutchery Road to take on struggling St George's.

Peel's fellow title contenders, Ayre United, have been awarded an away walkover as their opponents St John's United are unable to field a team later.

Meanwhile, Onchan have the chance to extend their lead at the top of Division 2 later when they visit Gymns - Onchan's nearest competitors of second-placed Castletown and Foxdale in third don't have matches tonight.

On Wednesday (17 April) there are seven ties scheduled across Canada Life Combination One and DPS Ltd. Combination Two.

In Combination One, Ramsey will be looking to maintain their four-point lead at the summit when they travel to Braddan whilst second-placed Rushen will be away at Marown.

Elsewhere, there's a three-way tie on 40 points at the top of Combination Two between Douglas High School Old Boys (Dhsob.), Onchan and Douglas Athletic heading into the latest ties.

Rounding off the midweek programme on Thursday (18 April) will be the opening round of this year's Cowell Cup with 16 Under-21 sides vying for a place in the next phase.
