Kinley and Hodgson get Island Games roles

Jersey opening ceremony representatives picked

Juan Kinley and Emma Hodgson have been selected as flag bearer and water carrier for the Isle of Man at the NatWest Island Games opening ceremony in Jersey.

The flag bearer is an honour bestowed on someone who has made a considerable contribution to the Manx cause over a long-time.

Triathlete Juan will be competing in his eighth Games and has previously represented the Island in Badminton.

The water carrier duty is traditionally given to the youngest member of the team and will be performed by 13 year old swimmer Emma Hodgson.
