Delting

Delting FC were formed in 1970, when a set of orange tops and some white shorts were secured in order for the club to enter the Parish Cup.  Success in the early days was very limited, but with an enthusiastic and committed community of players, Delting entered the Viking League in 1982 and so began the more organised weekly league and cup format for the club.  In 1983, Delting secured its first senior trophy, winning the Challenge Cup.   Following the amalgamation of the Viking League and the SFA, Delting FC accepted a place in the ‘Reserve League’ in 1987 and gained promotion to the top flight following a fantastic season, where the team lost the league in a play-off to Celtic.  Delting were beginning to establish themselves as a strong ‘A League’ side and announced themselves with success in the shape of the Madrid Cup in 1992 – the team’s first Association silverware.  Their first Parish Cup soon followed in 1993, the first of 14 to date, with the Delts beginning to thrive.  A number of Association trophies followed, including the Fraser Cup in 1994.  The wait for an ‘A’ League title was finally ended in 1999 when the club defeated Lerwick Thistle in a play-off at the Gilbertson Park. This win marked the beginning of a ‘golden’ period for Delting FC, with a strong nucleus of players beginning to break into the ‘A’ team.  During the early part of the 2000’s, Delting were the dominant club in Shetland football, putting together a historic run of ‘7-league titles-a-row’ between 2002-08.

The club have seen success across a range of competitions over the years, with the ‘A’ team winning 8 Association ‘League’ Titles, 7 Fraser Cups, 4 Manson Cups, 5 Madrid Cups and 4 County Shields to add to the 14 Parish Cup wins.

The club currently boast teams competing at every level from Under 9’s up to the Senior A Team.
