On Tuesday, the ‘B’ League 301 Cup was held in the Masonic. In a very close final, the Nomads took the title with a 4-3 win over the Vikings.
The Tom Notman Memorial Singles took place back in the Kirkwall Legion on Friday night, with Martin Peace beating Paul Firth 2-1 in a very close final. Tom was a very much respected founding member of the KDDL, serving as president and secretary over the years.
Despite having the week off for cup games, a couple of previously postponed league games took place.
In the Williamsons Butchers ‘A’ League, the Untouchables ‘A’ moved into the top half of the table, with a resounding 9-3 victory over Shapinsay.
Tankerness moved into pole position in the Williamsons Butchers ‘B’ League, inspired by in-form captain Robbie Norquoy gobbling up another brace of 180s as they narrowly defeated the Vikings 7-5.
