Scots infantry officer made to divide EURO 2020 garden into two sides by English wife


A SCOTS infantry officer has been made to split his garden EURO decorations in two after his English wife wouldn’t allow a full garden of Tartan Army décor.

Neil Williams, who is currently based in Chorley, Lancashire, clashed with his wife, Rachel, after covering their garden in Scotland flags shirts.

The 36-year-old, originally from Kinlochleven, Lochaber, had decorated his garden with Saltires, Scotland Tops, Scottish Rampant Lion flags and bunting with all the Euro countries teams.

The video shows the incredible set up with a lush AstroTurf pitch, wide screen tv located in large goal posts complete with seats and a cooler stocked with beers. 

But his English wife Rachel was not impressed and wanted one half of the garden to be dedicated to the Three Lions. 

First the video shows the garden completely covered in Scotland flags and decorations.

The next clip shows the decoration after its English make-over, now featuring half of the garden decorated in Union Jacks and English flags. 

Half of the garden is marked with Scots flags and Tartan army tops, while the other half is decorated with Union Jacks, the Saint George’s Cross and English FA flags.

Their son Noah has taken his dad’s side opting to support Scotland. 

The 8-year-old is in the Manchester United football academy and wants to play for Scotland when he is older.

With everything to play for the anticipation is high ahead of the matches tonight.

Tensions will be rising as England take on Czech Republic and Scotland take on Croatia both at 8pm fighting for a place in the next stage of the Euro 2020.

Speaking today Neil Williams said: “So with it being the first major tournament since I was at school, so I thought I would make an effort.

“My son was born in England but he supports Scotland because of me and he says he is going to play for Scotland when he is older.
