Senior soccer side in action at Bowl

The Isle of Man senior football team play their first match at the newly refurbished Bowl Stadium in Douglas this afternoon (Saturday).

It's an important one too, as they face Yorkshire Amateur in the second round of the FA Inter-League Cup.

The Manx have overcome Lancashire 3-1 and West Cheshire 5-0 in the competition, both games having been away from home.

It's the only senior football match on the Island today, and Island coach Steve Burns is hoping for a big crowd to cheer on the home side (listen to audio file below):

This afternoon's match kicks off at 2.30.
