Island's first mens netball team to make debut

Season gets underway next week

Netball history is set to be made next weekend.

The Island's first mens team - known as The Manx Fellas - will compete in the Premiership Division of the Manx Netball Association's local league.

It's going to be more of an exhibition opening season for the men though as the side won't be playing for points and teams will have the option to opt out of the match.

Co-captains Rob Mason and Stephen Mulhern spoke to Rhian Evans:

The season gets underway on Sunday 12 September.
