Largs Thistle legend George Wall writes for the News about football matters local, national and international...

That’s the 28 man provisional squad picked by Steve Clarke for the Euros in Germany, and there are no real surprises in there apart from North Ayrshire's own Ben Doak,

Good luck to him. I actually thought he was injured and would not be considered. Another surprise I guess is Ryan Jack, supposedly injured and nowhere near the Rangers squad.

My original feeling was it was not a squad that will do much, then I thought Scotland always seem to do well when they're not expected to do so.

I think we really need our midfield to perform at the top of their game for the team to progress from the group stage.

The squad will be cut down to 26 before the finals. I think all the players will now will be busting a gut to impress in the forthcoming games against Gibraltar and Finland to get on that plane to Germany.

I watched the Celtic v Rangers game on Saturday, and just knew Celtic would score - and so they did.

It was far from a memorable Scottish Cup final, after some pulsating league matches between the two this season, but it did have drama in the second half, with Rangers' goal being ruled out after a VAR check.

Manchester United were the unexpected and deserved winners of the English FA Cup which was a real surprise ending to the season. Everyone expected a Manchester City procession, with talk of successive doubles, but instead United really got a grip of this game after a dominant opening half hour from City.

United's second goal, scored by Kobbie Mainoo, was a really classy move and stunned everyone, and despite that late goal and a rally from City, United pulled off a big cup win.

The big question now is whether Erik Ten Hag will still get the sack from the Old Trafford board.  I think everyone expected that before the final.

Rangers did manage to win something at the weekend, though, with the women’s team picking up the Scottish Cup with a 2-0 win over Hearts on Sunday. Congratulations to my mate Craig McPherson, who is their coach.

In the play-offs that were also held on Sunday, Southampton are now back in the English Premier League after beating firm favourites Leeds United. Leeds really blew the automatic promotion place at the end of the season too.

In Scotland the Premier League play off went as I expected with Ross County being much too strong for Raith Rovers over the two legs.

My thanks to Drew Cochrane for last week's article on his memories of the day Largs Thistle won the Scottish Cup and the celebrations that followed. It brought back great memories for me, so thanks Drew.

Largs Thistle's over-35s are away to Troon this week.
