PRIMARY school pupils have scored a victory following a campaign asking their headteacher to let them watch Scotland's first Euro 2020 clash.

Poppy Lord, who attends St Stephen's Primary School in Clydebank, wrote a passionate letter to her headteacher, Ms Crombie with her efforts backed by none other than Scotland legend, John McGinn. 

Ms Crombie has now agreed to allow the children to watch the match against Czech Republic on Monday. 

The school held an online poll on Twitter today which has now netted an amazing 6,307 votes - with 95.4% of voters in favour of allowing the kids to watch their heroes in their first tournament in 23 years.

Poppy's Dad, Ricki has tweeted he was 'very proud' of his daughter. He said: "She did it! Thanks to everyone who liked, RT'd, commented and especially to John McGinn.

"Poppy is absolutely over the moon and has had an amazing day speaking with the media.

"One happy wee girl. I won't hear the end of this for months."

John McGinn also sent the kids a message via email, congratulating them for achieving their goal. He said: "Hi, John McGinn here. Just a quick message for Poppy. I'm sure everyone in the school and beyond had a read at Poppy's amazing letter to put pressure on the teachers and especially Ms Crombie at St Stephen's.

"I believe that the letters worked and the polling on the internet which means you're all going to be watching the game on Monday so just a big congratulations to Poppy. So if everyone can give Poppy a wee high five or a round of applause there.

"It's amazing for us to read that we can inspire so many people. I'm excited, I'm sure all the boys are the same. Finally just to everyone else at St Stephen's, I know it's a small school but if you stick to your dreams, keep working for it you never know what's possible so, all the best. What a school."
