Football: Season Kicks Off With Charity Shield

The football season on the islands started yesterday with the first fixture, the Charity Shield.

It was a 1-1 draw at full time with Darren Hicks getting the goal for the Garrison Gunners in the first half and Jack Stone equalising for the Wanderers in the second.

After a penalty shoot out, the Wanderers won 3 – 1.

The match was described as a good game despite torrential rain during the second half. The islands’ two football club captains will pick their teams for the rest of the season tonight.
