Welcome to The Tartan Scarf
Welcome to the Tartan Scarf!
I'm Gordon Sheach and I've been a Scotland fan since watching Scotland at France '98 as a 9 year old and going to bed in tears after Morocco sent us homeward.
My first match as a member of the Tartan Army was Alex McLeish's first game against Georgia at Hampden in 2007. I've attended every home competitive game since 2009 and have travelled to 10 away games.
As a keen follower of Scottish football, I've sometimes felt there was a gap in the market for a Scotland National team perspective.
The Tartan Scarf is going to be a place for me to write about the Scotland National team and Scottish players including:
- Scotland match previews & reviews
- Scotland squad previews & analysis
- Tracking Scottish footballers abroad - specifically in the EFL Championship & English Premier League
- Scotland Women's National Team
- Features, opinion pieces, interviews & more!
I'm excited to kick off this project at the start of a season that will hopefully see Scotland's women build on a debut World Cup appearance and end with Scotland's men returning to a major Finals for the first time since 1998.
Many thanks to Owen Wright (@OwenWright on Twitter) for designing the crest and graphics for the site.
Thanks for joining me, I hope you enjoy it!
