Whalsay 2 up at half-time but Delting deserved the 3pts with the 2nd half performance.


Even their local ref could'na help the bonnie isle boys to a win but boy did he try.


Is dat right!?!?!?


I don't want to sound like "sour grapes" as Delting beat us fair and square and for the second half were obviously much the better team and therefore i have no gripes about the scoreline..... but to say we were aided in any way by the referee is unbelievable.


I think for the first half both sides got away with murder but thats what happens when the ref doesn't get a grip early on (which he needed to do). As for saying he favoured us, well i could point out a fair few instances for us where we feel we received a raw deal.


What i will say is the referee was put in an awakward situation given that his son was playing in the match, maybe the association might want to look at that one for future reference.

Basically, Scalloway are missing alot of there big players, through injury, work etc. There just seems to be alot less players available to the manager, at least half of the b team have been called up to play with the A team due to the lack op players.

As a neutral spectator who went up to Brae to watch the big game I thought it was a great game of football.


Yes there were a few big challenges going in as I would expect from a Whalsay, Delting game and a few off the ball challenges as well.


The first thing I noticed was that the ref's son was indeed playing for Whalsay which can work both way's.

It does put him in a difficuit position and not one I would have liked to been in.


I don't think the ref had a bad game he tried to keep the game flowing and if he would have taken a card out early on we would have been lucky to have 11 players on each team on at the end.


I think Whalsay's first goal looked offside but the angle I was at in the car with the wipers going it was hard to tell but the Delting linesman did flag.


A Delting player could and maybe should have been booked in the first half for a challenge where he won the ball but did follow through.

A Whalsay player had some after's off the ball that the ref never saw.


Delting got a penalty which it was.

By my watch the ref played about 6 minutes injury time.


All in all the decisions were not to bad but will alway be scrutinised in such a big game.


I think Delting edged it and deserved the 3 points it could have been more than 3-2 to end up with.

But to say the ref favoured Whalsay is unfair.


What a great result for Yell.

Congratulations to Yell.

It's good to see that, in general, the league is looking a bit tighter.

Can't beat a nice bit of controversy thrown into the mix!! :D
