Manx side claim third place in Ynys Mon

A Rhys Oates hat-trick ensured the Isle of Man senior men's football team ended their Inter Games tournament in emphatic style.

Their 5-0 thrashing of Shetland sealed a third place finish in the competition which is being held as a replacement for the Island Games.

An own goal and a Dan Simpson effort added gloss to a victory in which the Manx scored four second-half goals in seven minutes.

The result also provided the perfect response to their semi-final defeat to Guernsey yesterday.
