This morning (Saturday, August 30) Lewis and Harris Select headed across the Minch for the annual Stornoway Gazette Challenge Cup match against Orkney in a confident mood.

The 15-man pool selected by chief Billy Flower and assistant Dano Macdonald is a healthy mix of experienced Select regulars with a generous sprinkling of first-timers in representative football.

Injuries may have robbed Flower of some of his first picks but their absence has opened the door to energetic and enthusiastic new boys who are determined to impress and keep their place ahead of next month’s North Caledonian Cup adventure.

The Select will meet Orkney at Dingwall’s Highland Football Academy Pitch on Saturday, August 30, with kickoff scheduled for 12:30pm.
