Earlier in the day the cup is touring the town’s educational establishments, Anderson High School, Sound and Bell’s Brae primary schools.

JW Gray director Iain Johnston said: “We are all delighted to have secured this excellent opportunity for all football fans in Shetland. Tying the cup’s visit with a promotion to help the local football association will put the icing on the cake.”

7.30pm – Lerwick Legion;

8.30pm – The Douglas Arms (Marlix)
