Senior Intercounty 2014

This weekend is the Intercounty – the traditional show down between Shetland and rivals Orkney across a variety of sports. A Shetland Football team, led by Manager Niall Bristow, is heading down to take on thier Orcadian counterparts. Shetland were victorious last year with a 4-1 victory.

This year’s encounter will take place at the Picky in Orkney, with a 4pm KO on Saturday the 12th of July. Delting’s Leighton Flaws is captaining the squad, whilst Shane Jamieson of Spurs and James Farmer of Ness step up to gain thier first caps. 

 Reports from the game will be updated live on Twitter – @ShetlandFootbal – and posted on the Shetland Football Association’s Facebook Page! Like and follow now to keep up to date!

The Association would like to wish the Footballers, and the other Intercounty Teams, all the best for the weekend ahead. If you want an idea of why the Intercounty matters so  much, read Liam Billington’s blog on the subject here
