Patriotic pub has high hopes for Roy's boys
A PUB in St George renowned for changing its appearance to get behind the England's participation in sporting events has shown its support for the nation's footballers.
Last month patriotic Gary Searle, who runs the Lord Raglan in Nags Head Hill, showed support for the Olympics by replacing its familiar sign with some of the game's heroes.
And to show his support for England footballers taking part in the European Championships in Poland and the Ukraine the 51-year-old has had a huge picture of manager Roy Hodgson emblazoned on the pub saying 'Come on England'.
Gary said: "I don't think many people had much hope for England and I was a bit dubious about putting it up there but it had to be done.

"Now the team has started doing quite well people are really getting behind them. Roy will come down when we are no longer taking part so we hope he will still be up on the day of the final – you never know.
"At the moment we are gearing up for the quarter-final when we will be packed as usual."
In the past the pub has displayed former England rugby manager Martin Johnson and former England football manager Fabio Capello.
