Sawyers and Lindsey, both of no fixed address, were convicted of murder.
Both were sentenced to life in jail.
Sawyers must serve a minimum of 20 years and Lindsey 14-and-a-half years.
Detective Inspector Dave Reid, investigating officer, said: “Mahad Mohammed was viciously assaulted and murdered by a group of men that included Sawyers, Harrison and Lindsey.
“Whatever the reason for his meeting with Sawyers that evening, Mahad was outnumbered and brutally attacked without any opportunity to defend himself or get away.”
