LERWICK Spurs have claimed the top prize in the domestic league after a resounding 5-0 victory over town rivals Lerwick Thistle at Gilbertson Park on Friday night.
A first half hat-trick from the returning Joe Leask put the Milkbags comfortably in command at half time, before an own goal and a Scott Morrison strike finished things off.
It leaves Spurs 10 points clear at the top of the Ocean Kinetics Premier League over Thistle, who with only three games remaining can no longer catch their rivals.
