The Isle of Man's senior side drew 1-1 against a Leeds United development side at the Bowl in Douglas on Wednesday.

Eoghan Stokes powerful shot gave Leeds a first-half lead before substitutes Conor Doyle and Johnny Myers combined for the island's equaliser.

Doyle's inch perfect cross found Myers whose glancing header found the corner of the Yorkshire side's net.

The match was the island manager Nick Hurt's first in charge in the run up to the Island Games this summer.
