Isles noted that he was happy to note that no fewer than four of the aforementioned executive members of the association, are former presidents and stated that he would be leaning on their expertise and experience to forge the way forward for Football on the island, even though he plans to bring his own personal initiatives into the mix as well.

Shortly thereafter, the island wide local competition will commence.
