Local teams out of Highland Amateur Cup

IT was a tough weekend for teams from the Western Isles in the Highland Amateur Cup as all four remaining clubs tumbled out of the competition.

Stornoway Athletic were well beaten on home soil by a formidable looking Avoch side, Stornoway United lost 2-1 to Thurso, the West Side went down 6-3 to Wick and Iochdar Saints agonisingly lost on penalty kicks following a 3-3 draw with Sleat.

It means the Highland Amateur Cup won’t be in Hebridean hands this season. Check out this week’s Stornoway Gazette for match details and pics from the weekend, published Thursday, June 21, 2012.
