Caithness v Orkney

Action from the Caithness v Orkney Archer Shield match played on 26 May 1968. Caithness won the match 5-3. Orkney goal scorers were Ian Hutchison (2) and W Spence.

The Orkney line-up in 2-3-5 formation was: J Sinclair,L Flett, R Pottinger, R Hutchison, F Hutchison, P Stout, R Groundwater, W Spence, I Hutchison, D Fox & E Craigie.

Anyone know if that's Jim Sinclair in goal or the Caithness keeeper? He has a good head of hair so it could be Jim!

I don't think the date can be right. I would think with the line-up that is listed it is more likely to be mid - late fifties.
Orkney had white sleeves in the mid fifties therefore I would guess, going by the men on the posts, that this is Caithness defending a corner/cross so I would say it's the Caithness keeper.

Earlier than 1968. '58 perhaps?

Sorry guys, the actual date was 26th May 1956. I was only eight months old at the time so that's my excuse!! My thoughts must have still been on the Faroes game when I entered the date.

Maybe the Caithness goalkeeper is Donald Gunn?
Match played on the "Dammies" Thurso
Return match was 7-2 to Orkney.
