The top junior footballers of the Lewis and Harris Youth Football leagues were honoured recently at their end of season prizegiving awards.

The end of season bash kicked off, literally, with a fun football match with the junior coaches taking on the U15 Development squad. The Coaches took a 2-0 lead after 10mins and that was about all the joy they had. A painful 50 minutes followed, quite literally for some.

The match resulted in an 8-4 victory to a thoroughly deserving U15s side, who played some brilliant football.

It said a lot that the Man of The Match for the coaches was their goalkeeper, Iain ‘Tiger’ Macarthur. The U15 Man of The Match was Josh Smith.

The awards presentation was held in the Caladh Hotel and the winners were as follows:

U15 League sponsored by Stornoway Painters and Decorators: Back FC

U15 Player of The Year: 1. Matthew Wright (Point); 2. Joel Martin (Back); 3. Josh Smith (Point)
