Sport / Orkney footballers secure Milne Cup after extra time victory

ORKNEY have won the 103rd Milne Cup clash after beating Shetland 2-1 on Saturday evening.

Lewis Harkness opened the scoring at Seafield in Lerwick in the second half to put the blues ahead.

But Aiden Drever equalised for Orkney to take the intercounty tie to extra time.

It was joy for Orkney, though, in extra time after Liam Delday scored to make it 2-1 to Shetland’s island neighbours.

Orkney had not won the Milne Cup since 2018, and they had not won on Shetland soil since 1981.

The match can be re-watched on the BBC Radio Shetland Facebook page.

Meanwhile a junior intercounty hockey match is due to take place at the Brae astroturf at 12pm on Monday (2 August).

Spectators are welcome, but they are reminded to adhere to social distancing rules.
