So it didn't come home (again!), but what a tournament Euro 2020 was for Gareth Southgate's boys!

Pubs across Welwyn and Hatfield were packed to their Covid-safe capacities by England fans excitedly awaiting Sunday's decisive match with Italy.

Our photographer was out and about capturing the socially-distant crowds to mark this momentous occasion, visiting both The Great Northern in Hatfield and The Two Willows in Welwyn Garden City to snap fans enjoying the game.

We might not have brought home the silverware, but it's been a journey we can be proud of.
