The seasonal debuts continue to come thick and fast in the latest installment of Isle of Man Newspapers’ Team of the Week.

No fewer than eight players make their 2021-22 bow in the sixth edition of the hypothetical XI after last weekend’s games in the Canada Life Premier League.

Of the two players who have already featured in TotW, one lines up in defence while the other dons the goalkeeper gloves.

The latter is Corinthians number one Adam Killey who produced several fine saves for his side during the Whites’ come-from-behind victory at St George’s and therefore earns his second call-up of the campaign so far.

Lining up in a four-man defence, Scott Mason is the other player to have already made his mark in Team of the Week and makes his third appearance in 2021-22 after another steady game in the heart of the Rushen United backline during the Spaniards’ big victory over Marown.

There’s no doubting the player of the day in the Premier League last weekend though, as Peel’s Tom Wood stole the show against RYCOB at Douglas Road.

Starting the game in defence, the western star grabbed a goal before switching to midfield in the second half and going on to score a further three goals to put Youthie to the sword.

Joining Mason and Wood in defence are Douglas Royal’s James Halliday and Killey’s Corinthians colleague Phil Kelly.

Halliday enjoyed another impressive game at the back for his side as Royal continued their fine start to the season with a 4-2 win over DHSOB at Ballafletcher, while Kelly got on the scoresheet for Corinthians with a crucial second-half equaliser against St George’s which set the stage for his side’s dramatic late victory.

Grabbing that 89th-minute winner at Glencrutchery Road was Sammy Gelling who was a threat throughout for Blane Slattery’s men and duly takes his place in the Team of the Week midfield.

Joining him in the centre of the park are Ramsey’s Jack Gilbert, Rushen’s Stephen Riding and Royal’s Kyle Watson.

Teenager Gilbert ran the show in the northern derby at Ballacloan Stadium, playing with confidence and skill throughout as Ramsey pushed title hopefuls Ayre United all the way, with the 17-year-old picking up the man of the match honours.

Likewise, talented teen Watson produced an eye-catching display in midfield for Royal to help the Whites defeat Old Boys, while Riding helped himself to a brace for Rushen during the Spaniards’ 8-1 win over Marown at Croit Lowey.

Leading the line in a two-man attack in the latest Team of the Week are Ciaran McNulty and Johnny Shields.

The latter man played an important role for Ayre United as the Tangerines battled to a potentially crucial late win over northern rivals Ramsey, while McNulty was in fine scoring form for St George’s as he bagged two goals against Corinthians at Glencrutchery Road.

The latest refereeing honours go to John McCallum who enjoyed a good game in the middle during the Douglas Royal v DHSOB clash at Ballafletcher.
