Isle of Man Golf has announced which players will fly the Manx flag at this year’s NatWest Island Games in Gotland.
The men’s team that will travel to Sweden will consist of Daryl Callister, Jon Corke, Tom Harris and Alex McAuley with team captain Kevin Moore.
The women’s line-up features skipper Christina Skelly, Catherine Cassidy, Kayleigh Dawson, Lea Dawson and Breeshey Jansen who will be defending the team silver they won in Jersey and hoping to go one better this time round.
Men’s captain Moore commented: ’This is indeed an extremely strong team and, as defending champions, they will do all they can to win team gold once again.
’Tom Harris also won individual men’s gold at the 2015 Games and will be defending his title against stiff opposition, especially from his own team members!’
Skelly was also full of praise for her squad, saying: ’We have selected a talented young team of whom I have high hopes, and I’m looking forward to seeing them triumph in Gotland.’
Both captains will also be travelling to Gotland as team managers.
Isle of Man Golf president Dee Lewis said: ’These are all great players and, with the teams now named, I am sure that all island golfers will join me in wishing them well in their preparations for the Games in June this year.’
