FC IOM Vs Guernsey next month – 3FM

After victory last week, FC Isle of Man will take on Guernsey FC once again next month.

It’s been announced the Manx club will travel off-Island to play ‘The Green Lions’ for a second friendly at Footes Lane on September 12.

The two teams fought out an entertaining contest in front of a sell-out crowd at The Bowl in Douglas last weekend, which FC Isle of Man edged with a 1-0 win.

On it’s official Facebook page, Guernsey FC says it was originally eyeing a return fixture for next year, but because the two teams bonded so well during the first meeting talks were soon underway to get the rematch organised at the earliest opportunity.

Meanwhile, FC Isle of Man Team Manager, Chris Bass, commented: “I am absolutely delighted and excited at the opportunity to play Guernsey FC once again and in such short space of time as well. We are all incredibly grateful to them for inviting us.

“It was a very good game at the Bowl last week and I was delighted with our performance so I am really interested to see if our lads can maintain that level in this return fixture.”

Further details about the game are expected to be announced over the next few days, with Guernsey also hoping to see some visiting Ravens fans able to head across for the occasion.
