Plan to boost Manx athletics

All clubs to unite in Newfield-sponsored league

Manx athletics is being shaken up, with the aim of making it more competitive.

After competing separately for years, the five clubs on the Island are joining forces to create a brand new competition, thanks to help from a local business.

The Newfield IoM Track and Field League will begin this summer.

Long in the making, the new initiative is the brainchild of Athletics Development Officer Hannah Riley and Head of Performance for Athletics Michael Haslett: (play audio)

There are two confirmed signing-on evenings for the IoM League at Manx Harriers' clubhouse on 14 and 21 March, between 5:30pm and 7:30pm
