Former Island player passed away earlier this week

A minute's silence will be observed ahead of the Hospital Cup final later to pay tribute to ex-Island player Stephen Glover, who died this week.

Wreaths will also be laid in the centre circle by a number of his former clubs ahead of the showpiece event between St Marys and St Georges at The Bowl.

Tributes have been pouring in from the Manx football community since news of his passing broke.

Fans are being urged to go along to the match tonight to pay their respects.
