Spurs crowned senior football champions
Lerwick Spurs became Shetland senior football champions for the first time since 1991 by clinching the G&S Flooring Premier League on Saturday.
They defeated Ness United 4-0 in the final match of the outoor season, played at Harbison Park in Whalsay because the Lerwick parks are now closed.
Jordan Webb gave Spurs the lead from the penalty spot in the first half after Ness keeper Erik Peterson had upended striker Connel Gresam in the box and received a yellow card.
The other three goals all came in the second half, courtesy of Scott Morrison, James Johnston (captain due to the absence of the suspended Josie Kay) and Gresham.
Kay’s brother Lewis was also missing due to suspension so the Spurs defence was different from the usual line-up.
The match was also notable for the fact that both Spurs and Ness have this year celebrated their 60th anniversaries.
Ness substitute Charlie Waterhouse was red-carded when he questioned one of referee Steven Goodlad’s decisions with “colourful” language while on the touchline.
Shetland Football Association vice-president Irvine Burgess presented the Association Cup trophy jointly to Johnston and Kay.
