TONIGHT (Friday) two of Lewis and Harris football’s heavyweights will slug it out in a bid to land the first silverware of the season.

The West Side, winners of the ABC Cup last season, will be looking to keep the trophy in Barvas for the second straight season but they will have it all to do against a Back side smarting from back to back defeats.

Back remain one of the island’s top teams, as proved by their stunning title triumph and run to the Highland Amateur Cup final in 2011.
