    With the finishing line in sight, we finally gear up for our trip over the Irish Sea to take on FC Isle of Man at the Douglas Bowl this Saturday evening.

    Supporters have been slowly arriving in the Manx Isle as the week has progressed, taking in all the area has to offer, whilst the ferries and airports will be busy on Saturday itself as around 600 Burt fans will be in attendance for our first visit to take on the Ravens at home.

    In the reverse fixture back in September, an early Lewis Gilboy brace was followed up by Niall Cummins and a diving Anton Smith header for a 4-0 Bury win. Highlights of this game are available below.

    Despite a change in management not long after, the Ravens have had an up and down season but have won their last three, including a 94th minute winner last time out at the Bowl when they overcame Avro.

    Thursday night’s loss against Burscough put a further dent in our playoff hopes, which now means we need to rely on results elsewhere to secure second.

    We expect the supporters are excited to be traveling in numbers this weekend. We have put together some information about how visitors to the island are expected to conduct themselves, you can find this HERE. Please respect the island and it’s laws at all times.

    Get behind the lads and support them to the end.

    All your pre-match information can be found below.

    Opponents – FC Isle Of Man

    FC_Isle_of_Man_crest.png

    FC Isle of Man was founded in 2020 and is a community-based football club which represents the island as a whole.

    The Ravens, like ourselves, were officially accepted into the English non-league pyramid for the 2020/21 season. However, due to Covid restrictions and border controls into the island, the club were temporarily suspended from the league as it was not possible to fulfil all their fixtures by 31st May 2021, as required by the English FA.

    Subsequently the season as a whole was eventually suspended due to further Covid outbreaks in early 2021 and the 2021/22 season became their first in the non-league system.

    Despite going top of the division temporarily in February after a dramatic 4-3 victory over eventual league champions West Didsbury, the Ravens ultimately finished second in the league but were promoted at the first attempt after defeating New Mills in the play-off final in front of more than 3,000 spectators at the Bowl.

    The Ravens go into the weekend in 16th place in the league, with any concerns over relegation firmly put to bed by winning the last three games.
