THE Lewis and Harris Select returned across the Sound of Harris this week with the prestigious Midsummer Trophy in their grasp after ending a long wait for the title.

The Select cruised to a comfortable 4-1 win over hosts Uist and Barra in the final having edged past Skye and Lochalsh with a last gasp winner in the semi-final.

It was a tremendous tournament and one which hosts Uist and Barra should be highly commended for. For full match details and pictures from the tournament please pick up a copy of the Stornoway Gazette, printed Thursday, June 7, 2012.
