The Galloway News - - VOICE OF THE PEOPLE -

he and his wife were en­joy­ing a break at their car­a­van at Kipp­ford.

He said: “I’m re­tired, I don’t have time to sit and watch telly.

“I would maybe watch the odd games if Scot­land had qual­i­fied but I wouldn’t make a point of it.

“I don’t mind the odd game of football but I won’t be watching it for a month solid – maybe for five min­utes. My two sons like football but I’m more into fish­ing, gar­den­ing and tak­ing pho­to­graphs.”

Karen Walker and Steve El­tring­ham, in the area on hol­i­day, are from Leeds, a city with a fine foot­balling tra­di­tion.

With Eng­land tak­ing part, surely they’ll be tun­ing in? Or maybe not..

Karen said: “We don’t re­ally like football, or sport.” Steve ex­plained: “There are bet­ter things to do than sit in the house or the pub and watch TV, es­pe­cially in this weather.

“It’s so over-rated and I’ve no in­ter­est in it.”
