Island officals handed showpiece final

REFEREEING in the Western Isles has received a significant pat on the back after it was confirmed that all four officials for the weekend’s prestigious Highland Amateur Cup are from the Lewis and Harris league.

Donald John Maclean has been named as the man in the middle with his assistant referee’s being confirmed as George Mackaskill, Calum Macleod and Murdo Macaulay.

The news is a huge boost to the island game and is an indicator of the standing our match officials hold across the region.
