Blues coach Niall Bristow hailed a strong team performance, after his troops battled for a 4-2 victory against Golspie Sutherland this weekend and earned a place in the semi-final of the Jock Mackay Memorial Cup.

In reality Bristow believed it could have been 4-0, but to be pegged back to two-all and then go on to win the game was “very satisfying”.

The last couple of years Shetland had relied on more mature players such as James Johnston and Leighton Flaws, he said.

Both were still “massively influential” but the Shetland boss praised Erik Peterson and Shane Jamieson and said players were coming out of the shadows.

“The movement of our front players was really good, three of our four goals came from open play,” said Bristow, and all four were from different scorers.

Scoring for Shetland were: James Aitken, Shane Jamieson, Connor Regan and Greg Tulloch.
