Whalsay’s footballers retained the G&S Flooring Premier League with a 5-2 victory over Scalloway on Monday evening.

The Bonnie Isle side needed a win to make sure of the title, which they have now secured with three matches still to be played. Monday’s other matches saw Thistle leapfrog Ness at the foot of the league after a 2-1 win, Delting shade Whitedale by the odd goal in seven and Celtic defeat Spurs 2-1 in the town derby.

The league victory means Whalsay have now won three of the five senior trophies, with competition for the County Shield due to begin later this month. On Saturday they added the Fraser Cup to their earlier Manson Cup triumph, defeating Delting in the final at Scalloway.

Stuart Shearer gave Whalsay the lead but Delting centre back Merv Jamieson headed an equaliser before Karl Williamson restored the Bonnie Isle side’s two-goal advantage.

Back came Delting again and prolific Ross MacDougal made it 2-2 but Alister Johnson grabbed the winner for Whalsay.
