0 comments, , by , in Sport

Whitedale stretched their lead in the senior football’s Madrid Cup qualifying league table to five points by defeating Delting on Friday while all the other teams dropped at least one point.

Delting bounced back to defeat Scalloway, Whalsay managed a win and a draw while Thistle, Spurs and Scalloway picked up a point apiece.

The results mean Whitedale have now definitely qualified for the semi-finals while Spurs look likely to join them with Scalloway, Delting, Celtic and Whalsay all technically in the running for the other two places.
