Ailig aig na Euros

Herding sheep and herding footballers, are tasks which feature heavily Alex O' Henley’s life. In June 2021, on his croft in South Uist, Alex was tending his flock of sheep but this would change dramatically within days. As UEFA’s Scottish reporter his role would be tallying goals instead of sheep as the European Championships 2020 began. He’s been UEFA’s Scottish football correspondent since 2004, but now the national team would be competing. Football has always been part of his life and he looks back at where it all began, supporting his home team Southend as a boy in the 70s.
