Spurs deservedly won the Manson Cup at Gilbertson Park earlier today, defeating Whitedale 2-0 in the final at Gilbertson Park.

The first half was fairly even, with end-to-end play at times, but Spurs were much more dominant after the break with their keeper rarely troubled.

A few minutes into the second half Sam Ward gave Spurs the lead, running on to a through ball before volleying it in off the post.

Spurs made sure of the win when Cameron Gibbs was brought down while heading along the byline to goal. Joe Kay made no mistake from the penalty spot.

Standouts for the winners were Andrew Flett in central defence and veteran James Johnston in midfield, while youngsters Lewis Harkness and substitutes Connor Grant and Lewis Barclay also played their part.

Spurs captain Grant Wood received the Manson Cup from Robbie Leslie of sponsor Northwards.

Also today, Works league side LK Galaxy won the Greig Seafood Cup in their first season, beating Ness United C 3-0 in the final at Seafield.

Scorers for Galaxy were Fraser Crawford (own goal), Dominic Mann and a Bruce McCulloch Penalty.

• Full reports of both matches will be in next week’s Shetland Times.
