One win and one loss for IoM Special Olympics football team

Gareth Cowin Memorial Tournament held in Gibraltar

The Isle of Man Special Olympics football team have returned from Gibraltar, where they were competing in the Gareth Cowin Memorial Tournament.

They won their first match 8-0 against Algeciras, but then lost to the hosts by the same scoreline.

Gibraltar won the tournament for the fourth year in a row.

The games took place in the brand new Special Olympics Gibraltar Sports Complex, which was opened just three weeks ago.

Prior to the tournament taking place, a decision had been made that next year's one would return to the Isle of Man.

The Isle of Man FA says it's hoping to expand the number of teams taking part next year and has started looking at dates and accommodation options for visitors.
