Orkney Goes Far

This image is of a recent Guernsey versus Orkney football match. Another inter-island match was held last Saturday, wth a first fixture. The Orcadian reports:

'Orkney beat Lewis and Harris in Dingwall this afternoon to win the inaugural The Stornoway Gazette Inter-Island Challenge Cup clash. Orkney won 3-2 on penalties, following a 2-2 draw. Wayne Monkman and David Delday scored for Orkney during the first half, before Lewis and Harris pulled two back after the break. The two sides could not be separated, and DJ Moffat, Chris Simpson and Jon Tait scored from the penalty spot to give Orkney first blood in the annual fixture.'
