Stromness clinched their first ‘A’ League title in more than 40 years this evening.

A 4-2 victory over Dounby at the Market Green gave the men in maroon an unassailable lead at the top of the league.

Stromness last won Orkney’s top flight in 1982 and the full-time whistle was greeted by joyous scenes by the players and the club’s supporters.

Stromness are also the first West Mainland side to win the ‘A’ League in 22 years, breaking the Kirkwall stranglehold on the Brough Cup.
