WHALSAY has had a poor week losing to Celtic in the Manson Cup after a surprise defeat in the Madrid Cup final last weekend thanks to a last minute Spurs goal, a team who only manage a draw in their Group One match against Whitedale.
Spurs 2 v Whitedale 2
Spurs made life hard for Whitedale with some quality football early on and Sean Maver opened the scoring for the Lerwick side from a Josie Kay cross.
It was no time before Duncan Fraser levelled the scoring, only for Joe Leask to put Spurs back in front almost immediately.
It was Jamie Wilson who put the two teams on level pegging, and missed scoring the winner before an open goal.
Delting 7 v Scalloway 2
Despite finding themselves two ahead at the start of the match with goals from Scott Henderson and Alan Davidson, Scalloway lost heart when Kevin Sinclair was sent off.
Leighton Flaws scored from the penalty spot, adding a second to the earlier goal from Ross MacDougal.
In the second half it was all Delting’s game, with goals from Stuart lavender (2), Kevin Main, Robert Balfour and Ross Jamieson.
Celtic 3 v Whalsay 2
Whalsay grabbed the lead in minutes with a 30 yarder from Colin Leask, only for the home team to equalise within minutes with a Connor Regan header.
Five minutes later Celtic were in the lead with a second from the head of Regan from a Ryan Grant cross.
Lowrie Simpson made it three for Celtic half way through the second half, while his namesake Ian Simpson gave Whalsay hope with just ten minutes left on the clock, but to no avail.
Thistle 3 v Ness United 5
Scorers for Ness were Kevin Smith (2), Scott Ferguson (2) and Neil Fenwick, while Neil Riddell, Stevie Michael and Thomas Clark scored for Thistle.
