A 56-48 victory over old rivals Shetland on Saturday afternoon saw the reds beat the blues to third spot on the competition’s final day.

In a gruelling schedule of five games in five days starting on Tuesday, Orkney enjoyed wins over Guernsey, Ynys Mon and Shetland, losing out to the strength of Jersey and Isle of Man.
