FC IOM need signatures for off-Island league campaign

Wed, 30 Oct 2019


FC Isle of Man are urging people to sign a support page to enable the team to play in off-Island leagues.
 
The Club posted a video online explaining how people's support will help the club's future.
 
In the video, spokesman Paul Jones, said: 'The more of you who show your support and demonstrate your support for FC Isle of Man, the more reassured the Northwest Counties Football League will be and the English FA will be that there's enough support on the Isle of Man for this club.'
 
Currently, the highest levels the Island team can play at is the biennial Umbro Challenge, the Island games and the FA Inter-league Cup, the lack of consistent high level competition perhaps doesn't let players develop to their potential as well as they could in other leagues. 
 
There are nearly 300 supporting the campaign so far.
 
Chairman Gary Weightman spoke to Energy FM about why people should sign up:
