Lewis and Harris FC’s debut North Cakedonian Cup campaign ended in defeat yesterday when the side went down 1-0 to Alness at Dalmore Park.

But the Hebridean Heroes were a credit to the isles as they dominated in spells and by and large merited a win of their own.

But ultimately they couldn’t make the most of their sights of the Alness goal while the hosts snatched what proved to be the winner a little more than ten minutes from the end.
