Manx team in international tournament

The Isle of Man football squad is due to fly to Northern Ireland this morning (Wednesday) in its bid for Umbro glory.

The national team is competing in the Umbro Quadrangular tournament against sides from the amateur football associations of the Republic of Ireland, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The Isle of Man plays the Republic this evening in its first game in the round robin competition.

While underdogs, the Island won the trophy once, on home soil, a decade ago.
