The second fixture witnessed the island’s Masters side take on Breckfield FC.

It was the visitors took a two-goal half-time lead thanks to strikes from Mike Schofield and Mark Kenny.

However, Nigel Moody pulled a goal back in the second half for the Manx when he directed home a glancing header. With the last attack of the game the islanders drew level when Martin Torr intercepted a visiting goal-kick and rolled the ball into an unguarded net to make it 2-2.

In the remaining fixture, the IoMFA’s U23s defeated Tranmere Rovers U23 3-2.

The Birkenhead side were two goals up at the interval before goals from Mike Williams, Joey Morling and Shaun Kelly fired the Manx to the win.
