Guernsey strike late to book final spot

A goal five minutes from time saw the Isle of Man senior men's football team slip to defeat against Guernsey in the semi-finals of the Inter-Island Games tournament.

Skipper Frank Jones and Dan Simpson had drawn the Manx side level after trailing 2-0 at the interval.

However, Guernsey went ahead again late on leaving little time for a response, seeing the Channel Island progress to the final after a 3-2 victory.

The Isle of Man will have another match as they face the loser of the other last-four match between Shetland and host nation Ynys Mon.
