In Friday evening’s G&S Flooring Premier League match, meanwhile, champions Spurs comfortably defeated Delting 5-1 at Gilbertson Park.

Whitedale 1, Whalsay 0

(after extra time, 0-0 at full time)

The match at Seafield was a very close-fought one with chances few and far between. Whalsay probably had the best of the first half while the West Siders shaded the second period.

Still score-less at full time the game went into extra time and one goal was always going to be decisive. Midfielder Tulloch, now one of Whitedale’s most experienced players, was the man to provide it.

Whitedale, having already secured the Madrid Cup this season, will now look to improve their league form where they sit bottom after one match. They play Delting at Strom on Monday evening.

Jordan Webb hit a hatrick while Dominic Mann and Joe Kay scored the other goals as the champions look to get a decent run going. Gary Sutherland got a consolation for the Delts.
