Isle of Wight football draw farce

There will be no decision about who plays who in this summer's NatWest Island Games football tournaments until next week.

The draw took place yesterday (Thursday), but the Football Technical Committee of the International Games Association raised issues with the Isle of Wight FA and the main organising committee.

It seems the concern centres on whether the planned programme of matches could be completed within the week the games take place.

Any decision about sticking to the original line-up, or a possible redraw, has been deferred until at least Monday (May 9).

Yesterday, the Isle of Man was drawn to play Guernsey, Gotland and the Falkland Islands in the men's competition, and Gibraltar and Greenland in the women's event.
