Report by Ben Cunningham:

In the ladies prem there is a big clash between two big sides as Bacchas A play Vikings A - last time these two met Vikings came away with the win will they do it again or can Bacchas take the win this time? 

Harlequins A play Valkyrs A - when these two met last it ended a draw so this could be a close match, elsewhere there is a southern derby between Castletown B who are still looking for their first points and Castletown A who will be wanting maximum points from this game to keep the chase on at the top. 

In the men’s prem Castletown A play Bacchas B in a big game as both sides look for points; Harlequins A play Valkyrs A who they have already drawn against in the league but when they met in the cup Valkyrs came away with the win. 

Finally we see the clash of Vikings A playing Bacchas A, Vikings A are sat at the top of the league and are still unbeaten however Bacchas A will be wanting to make up for the points they have lost so far and a win this weekend over the league leaders would put them just one point off the top spot.

In ladies division one top of the table Vikings B play Ramsey A who sit in third on goal difference but just one point off Vikings, when these two sides met in the league it was an eight-goal thriller ending as a draw but in the plate when they met Vikings came away with the win. 

Castletown C play Valkyrs B in a mid-table clash with both teams looking for points this looks a close match; finally there is a club derby between Bacchas C and Bacchas B. 

In men’s division one Harlequins B who beat Castletown B last time out play top of the league Valkyrs B who will be making sure they keep up their good form. 

Finally second place Ramsey A play third placed Vikings B with both sides looking for the points however the northerners came away with the win last time they met. 

In ladies division two Ramsey B play Vikings C who beat the northerners when these two last met. 

Harlequins B who currently sit second in the league play third-placed Valkyrs C in a match that looks set to be very close, and we have another southern derby this time between Castletown D and Castletown E which will a good, friendly competitive game. 

In men’s division two Valkyrs C who are currently third play Bacchas D who sit second just two points ahead so a lot at stake in this game and Bacchas Colts who sit top of the league two points clear of Bacchas D play bottom of the league Castletown C. 

Finally in the U15’s league which has been really interesting to watch the up and coming Manx talent we have we see Valkyrs play Vikings and Bacchas play Harlequins.
