Pitch battle;Jotter

The football stars of tomorrow in the Western Isles continue to display their art on surfaces that would rival Wembley - when it becomes a building site.

Councillors were told last week of the splendid turf at Liniclate School. Pitch 1 is "a mix of perennial rye grass with annual meadow grass and the wings have a high content of moss with clover and daisy throughout."

Pitch 2 "is a mix of rye grass with meadow found in a mixed sward of frescoes and bents. Clover, daisy and buttercup are present throughout the pitch."

These are not the names of bovine pets, although other animals are causing havoc on the wings. Rabbit damage has been repaired and the fencing has been reinstated, we are informed.

Pure magic when they've got the ball at their feet.
