Feature will air during the BBC show this Saturday (26 mar)

FC Isle of Man will be the focus of a major feature on this weekend's edition of BBC's Football Focus.

Producers from the show, including Manxman Rick Faragher, came to film the episode during the weekend of the Ravens 1-1 draw with Abbey Hey at The Bowl on 12 March.

During that time they spoke with a series of people connected to the club including players, management and supporters.

The presenter of the feature Mr Faragher, originally of Onchan, says the story of the club is one he's wanted to bring to UK audiences.

He adds: "The report isn't just about football - it's about the Island community and Manx identity".

The FC IoM documentary will be part of the Football Focus programme which gets underway at 12pm on BBC One this Saturday (26 March).
