Lewis and Harris pay the penalty

Lewis and Harris FC were eliminated from the Jock Mackay Cup this weekend despite a battling and spirited performance against Thurso.

A late penalty kick by Sean Stewart unpicked the travelling islanders who dominated for much of the match but were denied by the post twice while they also had two goals chalked off by the assistant referee.

A bad injury to defender DI Maclennan, which required hospital treatment, put the result into perspective but our players can hold their heads high after another strong showing.
