FC Isle of Man, who have applied to join the English football league system next season, have unveiled the club’s crest.
It was announced in December that their application to join next season at Step 6 was to be taken to the Football Association by the North West Counties Football League. It was stated that the NWCFL will recommend that the club are accepted, providing the appropriate criteria is met by 31st March 2020. Chris Bass was named last week as the club’s first manager.
The club say the crest is designed by Eden Creative and ‘in line with the philosophy of our parent company Sporting Club Isle of Man…carefully crafted to not only reflect the essence of our Island’s history, colours and community but also, importantly, to represent our confident sporting approach.’
With more details forthcoming, the club outline the key points behind the design as:
- The Black Raven is one of the national birds of the Isle of Man and is synonymous to Celts and Vikings with battle, intelligence and problem-solving – and is depicted ready to attack
- The red and white colours represent our stunning sunsets and infamous Manannan’s Cloak
- The four water lines represent the North, South, East and West of the Island, symbolising unity and community
- The words “Bee ny Share” is Manx Gaelic for “Be Better”
