League champions Stornoway Athletic got their title defence off to a winning start with a very comfortable home win over town rivals United this weekend.

Aths ran out 5-1 winners in a one-sided affair with striker Scott Maciver netting a hat-trick.

Elsewhere, the West Side enjoyed an excellent start to the season with a hard fought 3-2 win over Back in Barvas while Carloway’s trip to Tarbert was rewarded with a 4-0 win over Harris.
