Euros 2020 in 2021

Catching up after Covid-19 stopped play

For the first time in 60 years the UEFA EURO football competition is taking place in 11 cities across the continent rather than just one host country.

And though we may be some way in, as the last 16 fall away to the finalists, it confuses me still to see hoardings around the grounds proclaim Euro2020; 2021 feels the strangest time warp in so many ways!

Here’s a little local football action from the lush green pitch beside the harbour at Lochinver, a sweet feast for the deer herd that trots in blithely from surrounding hills and neighbouring Culag Wood.

This particular stag is incorrigible, a bold regular with scant regard for the high deer fence or the mortified players obliged to scoop poop while the visiting opposition warm up ahead of match day kick off!
