Denis Law has had to cancel a scheduled visit to Lewis tomorrow, due to illness.

The football legend (76) was due to officially open the all-weather, enclosed Sports Arena at Upper Coll.

That duty will now be performed by Calum Iain ‘Duff’ Graham, who will also be made Honorary President of Back Football and Recreation Club.

The official ceremony gets underway at 3pm, with everyone welcome to attend.

Kids from Back FC will put on a display of their skills, and refreshments will be provided.

Terri Davies, Sport and Community Project Co-ordinator at Back FC commented: “We’re sorry that Denis Law won’t be joining us, and he himself has expressed how disappointed he is that he won’t be coming.

“But he is under doctor’s orders, so it’s for the best.”
