Spurs B clinched victory in the Bloomfield Cup final with a winning header in the dying minutes of the cup clash against Delting.

In a tightly fought final it was the boys in white who came out on top with Neil Fenwick heading the ball past Delting B’s Stuart Hay.

Spurs skipper Dominic Mann dedicated the victory to the late Spurs stalwart Jim Peterson.

Michael Duncan of the Shetland Football Association said it was very close game, with both sides enjoying good seasons.

“It was always going to be a close game and I think it was either going to take a bit of magic or a mistake.

“I think the goal was worthy of winning any cup final.”

Spurs B coaches Dale Keith and Robby Watt were delighted the boys got their hands on the silverware.

Keith said they had good bunch of boys and hoped to go one better next season in the league.

“Last season we were second bottom and couldn’t get 11 players to games. We’ve finished second in the league this year and now won the final.”
