The Stornoway Gazette’s pictorial walk through the Lewis and Harris football champions continues with four from the 1980s this week.

Pictured above are Stornoway Athletic from 1988.

Shockwaves rippled around local football as Ness were denied a fifth title on the bounce by a determined and talented Aths side in 88.

Aths took the title with a 3-0 win over Stornoway rivals Rovers on the neutral territory of Garrabost.
