Manx Hockey Association’s men’s and women’s league seasons are now on hiatus until after the school half-term holidays.

Therefore, taking centre stage this weekend is the Isle of Man women’s A team who are travelling across to play the next round of the EH Women’s Tier Two KO Championship.

Having defeated Timperley Twos in the last round in a very close 2-1 victory, thanks to goals from Sarah Blackman and Kim Carney, the Manx side now head to Merseyside for their round of 16 clash.

The islanders face a very tough test against Liverpool Sefton Ones in a game which takes place at Liverpool College, pushing back at midday with a spot in the quarter-finals up for grabs.

A full report will appear in next week’s Isle of Man Examiner, on sale Tuesday morning.


Both of the Isle of Man’s senior men’s and women’s national sides are currently without a sponsor.
