Pandemic delays kick-off for Manx team – 3FM

A UK football league which will include the Isle of Man for the first time this year says it’s postponing the start of the season.

The North West Counties Football League had planned to get underway on September 5, but says Covid-19 restrictions make that unfeasible.

The organisation says the first matches will now be played Saturday, October 3 instead.

FC Isle of Man had been included in the league’s First Division South, and will face opponents such as Cammell Laird 1907,  Vauxhall Motors and Stockport Town.
