A new trophy is set to be contested by FC Isle of Man and Guernsey FC after the announcement a sporting partnership had been agreed.
Guernsey licensed bank, Skipton International, will sponsor the event for an initial three-year period as the two island based teams play each other for the Skipton Cup.
The two sides faced each other in FC Isle of Man’s first-ever match earlier this month at The Bowl in Douglas, with the hosts running out 1-0 winners thanks to a Jack McVey penalty.
This deal now means they’ll face each other on an annual basis, with the added bonus of some silverware up for grabs.
The inaugural Skipton Cup match will take place at Guernsey FC’s Footes Lane on 12 September.
