Finn Tapp, a footballer for OxfordCity, has temporarily left the Clubfor the newest series of ITV’s LoveIsland. Previous sporting contestants that have appeared on Love Island include last year’s winner, and Ireland sevens international in rugby, Greg O’Shea, as well as boxer Tommy Fury and basketballer Ovie Soko. Tapp entered the South AfricaVilla alongside model ConnaughHoward. After the departure ofOllie Williams, the total numberof contestants still in the Villastands at thirteen. “I’ve always been loyal. Whenever I start getting the wandering eye, it’s time to break up. Who knows what could happen.” Oxford City were not informedof Tapp’s decision to join theshow. In a statement, City said:“The club was not aware FinnTapp was going on Love Island– this is normal protocol for allcontestants. We understand andwish Finn luck on the show.” Mick Livesy, Oxford City Commercial Director, said: “Of course we’ll miss him but he’s a cracking lad. We support him and wish him the best of luck. We’ve just re-loaned him to Love Island – that’s all. He’s an integral part of the team. He’s a good looking lad, has great physique and a fantastic footballer so I’m sure he’ll do well.” Tapp started in Oxford City’s previous fixture, a 3-0 defeat to Dartford, but was substituted early on following a clash of heads, reportedly leading to an eight-minute match stoppage. Tapp was signed by City from MK Dons last summer, making twelve appearances in the National League South for the Club. On his arrival to the Villa, the twenty-year-old centre-back said: “It’ll be great if I come out the villa with mates, but if I need to step on toes to get the girl I like, I’ll do it.
