Noble’s C are United as they Look to ‘Leeds’ the Way In Division Three

League champions South Ramsey A will be wary of the challenge from Marown A, who might well be favourites for the league title in Canada Life International Sponsored Division One following the acquisition of Peter Jones midway through 2022, with John Gelling returning to the fold, whilst Glenn Boland has been promoted to the A team. South Ramsey A meanwhile have made just the one change from last season, with Alan Moore returning to the A team. Just two points separated the teams at the end of the 2022 season.

Newly promoted teams South Ramsey B and Marown C will be looking to consolidate their place in the top division, with Marown C looking well placed to hold their own.

In Division Two Onchan B and Port Erin A will be looking for an immediate return to the top flight. Noble’s A who settled into Division Two will be looking to improve on last year’s ninth place finish. North Ramsey B and Noble’s B were the teams promoted from Division Three last season, as they look to consolidate their place in the middle tier.

In Division Three a number of teams will be looking to push on and improve, with Marown D looking to take the next step as they narrowly missed out on promotion.

There are positive vibes coming from Noble’s, who have introduced two new teams this season. Noble’s C, which is made up of Leeds fans who are new to the game has been put together by Stevie Cain. Other than attending an open day at the end of last season and two weeks of practice recently, the guys really seem to have got the bug. This is a little bit more than a rumour as the team will be playing in Black and Orange shirts (pictured) this season, in line with the club colours, with the twist that they are actually Leeds United shirts!

It is a remarkable turnaround for the club who are one of the oldest clubs on the island which was on the brink of collapsing, to be in a position to now field four teams. The club is going from strength to strength thanks to the work from the new club members.
