The Nicolson Institute’s under-13 wide-boys Euan Anderson and Michael Jones fuelled a jet-heeled performance which powered the Stornoway school into the semi-finals of the Schools Scottish Cup.
Anderson and Jones, each playing wide on their respective flanks for the Nicolson, rolled through more gears than an entrie series of Top Gear.

The Golspie stoppers couldn’t cope with his dribbling skills which left them trailing in his wake.
There was no respite on the opposite wing where Jones was patrolling the left, bubbling with enthusiasm, driven early crosses and rapier like bursts forward.
