Manx Football sides going to Island Games

Players willing to part pay for trip to Gotland

The Isle of Man Football Association will be sending two sides to the NatWest Island Games in Gotland next year.

The decision has been taken after recent meetings with both the men's and ladies squads.

The F.A. needed to be reassured that players were willing to partly fund themselves to go to the competitions.

Costs for the chartered flights and accomodation have risen in recent weeks after the United Kingdom vote to leave the European Union and the subsequent fall in the value of the pound.
