The Isle of Man women's football team beat the Isle of Wight and Jersey to win the second Inter Island football tournament over the weekend.

The Manx women won their opening match 1-0 on Friday against the Isle of Wight courtesy of a Jade Burden strike.

Keith Lunt's side then defeated Jersey 3-0 at the Bowl on Sunday to be crowned champions in front of the home crowd.

Three first-half strikes from Sarah O'Reilly, Stephanie Hall and Eleanor Gawne sealed the win.

Isle of Man manager Lunt told BBC Isle of Man: "It is really pleasing to win against quality opposition, especially without conceding a single goal.

"I think we could have played better in both games but I'm delighted to win."

Jersey finished second after beating the Isle of Wight 2-0 on Saturday.
