The Scottish Communities League Cup made a surprise appearance at a training session for Stornoway United under12s and under 14s.

ONE of Scottish football’s most prestigious prizes spent two days visiting youngsters in Lewis schools and criss-crossing across the island to some of our most famous landmarks when the Scottish Communities League Cup dropped into Laxdale School and Stornoway Primary this week.

The prestigious trophy, won last season by Kilmarnock FC and due to be played for by St Mirren and Hearts next month, is more than 60-years old and has been guest of honour at many cup parties involving some of the country’s biggest stars and clubs.

And it was guest of honour for pupils at both schools, Stornoway Primary Nursery, Stornoway United’s junior training while it also took a day trip to the Callanish Stones and the picturesque sands of Traigh Mor, Tolsta.

Pictured above is the trophy with youngsters at Stornoway United training (SGD24957). To purchase the picture, or any in this week’s Stornoway Gazette spread, simply call the office quoting the unique photo reference.
