Whitedale fight back against Spurs to secure Madrid Cup

Whitedale claimed the first senior football trophy of the season, the Madrid Cup, by beating Spurs 4-2 at Gilbertson Park on Saturday afternoon.

The West Side team fought back after being two goals down in what was sweet revenge for the league defeat inflicted on them by the Milkbags a week earlier.

Friday’s G&S Flooring match saw Delting travel to Scalloway and come away with a handsome 7-2 victory.

Duncan Anderson scored twice for Whitedale.
