Stornoway to Stenny

A story in a recent issue of the Stornoway Gazette involved a young boy signing for Stenhousemuir Football Club. A feature of this Scottish League team is that they have a strong supporters' club in ... Norway. The reason is allegedly because there is a tradition for young footballers on remote Norwegian farms to have to practise their skills against posts painted on the walls of a barn - 'the stone-house-mural'. The Club's name obviously resonates far away. It's a connection that could pay dividends were the team to rise from the Second Division because, as a result of their interest, this group of fans was awarded 5% of the Club's shares.
