Orkney face Shetland for Milne Cup

Orkney's footballers celebrate during last year's inter-county clash but ultimately fell just short. Can they do something that no Orkney side in 34 years has done and win in Shetland?
Orkney’s footballers celebrate during last year’s inter-county clash but ultimately fell just short. Can they do something that no Orkney side in 34 years has done and win in Shetland?

Orkney’s footballers are set to take on the ‘auld enemy’ today as they face Shetland in the annual senior inter-county clash for the Milne Cup.

Orkney will be looking for revenge following last years narrow defeat in 2-3 thriller in Kirkwall but will be mindful of their record in Shetland. Shetland are unbeaten at home against their Northern Isles neighbours in 34 years — the last defeat coming in 1981 when they lost 0-1.

The game is due to kick off at 5pm at Gilbertson Park, Lerwick.
