West coast rivals ready for football showdown in season finale

Tonight (Friday) see’s the final match of the Lewis and Harris football season take place and with it, the final piece of footballing silverware up for grabs.

Carloway, who just last week ended their 55-year wait for a senior football trophy when they won the Co-op Cup, are set to tangle with Eilean an Fhraoich Cup winners the West Side in the showpiece showdown for the Moldova Lewis Cup.

The match is taking place at the home of Back FC at Upper Coll with a 6pm kick-off agreed due to the fading light at this time of year.

The two sides clashed in the EAF final last month with the West Side recovering from the loss of an early goal to win 2-1.

Now the west coast rivals are ready to cross the white paint battle lines for the final time this season as each side chases a dream double.
