Kick-off at 3pm

The Isle of Man will continue their preparation for the forthcoming FA Inter League Cup campaign this afternoon.

Widnes are the visitors to The Bowl as Paul Jones' men play for the first time since a third-place finish at the Inter Games Football Tournament in Ynys Mon.

A semi-final defeat to Guernsey meant the Manx side were unable to achieve back-to-back competition victories - having won gold in the 2017 Island Games.

Due to a lack of pitches, football was not one of the sports included in this year's Games in Gibraltar, meaning a separate competition was held in its place.

Host nation Ynys Mon went on to lift the trophy, while the Isle of Man thrashed Shetland 5-0 in the third/fourth play-off to end on a high.

Tickets are still available for today's game, which will kick-off at 3pm.
