SHETLAND’s intercounty football clash with Orkney will be broadcast live on BBC Radio Shetland and Radio Orkney on Saturday afternoon.

Coverage kicks off at 4pm with Phil Goodlad and Caroline Moyes looking ahead to the big game, as Shetland looks to retain the Milne Cup on home soil.

Then at 4.45pm the station will be broadcasting live from Seafield, handing over to presenter Jane Moncrieff and a commentary team of Adam Harcus, Stuart Smith and Danny Peterson ahead of the 5pm kick-off.

Adam Guest will also be soaking up the atmosphere pitchside.

Shetland Football Association president Iain Smith said it was very welcome to see sporting events returning again after Covid.

“It’s a special day in the sporting calendar,” he said.

“It’s a cup final for both teams, and the stakes are high. I wish Neil [Fenwick, manager] and the team all the best and hope Shetland can retain the Milne Cup.”


BBC Radio Shetland senior producer John Johnston said: “We’re looking forward to once more bringing the excitement of the big game to our listeners. We’ll have plenty of analysis, pre-match and post-match interviews and plenty of banter thrown in too.”
