Erin Cuthbert is a bear

Funny how sometimes one's initial thoughts prove to be correct. I watched the Women's England v Scotland game on tv and I kept saying to the mrs that Cuthbert is head and shoulders above the rest of the women, but she was playing out on the wing in the first half and isolated. Following the FF thread at the same time, most of us were 'shouting' to the coach to bring her inside and to her credit, she did in the second half. Result? Scotland played most of the game through her new role in midfield and Cuthbert made a telling contribution. Now I find out she is a bear. Brilliant.

Her dads from NI. So that must be the link then ? If it’s common with the good guys over there ?
He just picked the name from the words of his favourite song. ;)

Sure I'm an Ulster Orangeman, from Erin's Isle I came
To see my Glasgow brethren all of honour and of fame
And to tell them of my forefathers who fought in days of yore
All on the twelfth day of July in The Sash My Father Wore.
Erin is a Hiberno-English derivative of the Irish word "Éirinn". ... In this context, along with Hibernia, Erin is the name given to the female personification of Ireland, but the name was rarely used as a given name, probably because no saints, queens, or literary figures were ever called Erin.

As a large & loyal chunk of our support travel from Ireland, I claim 'Erin' for our queen!
Thank you Susie Dent.
Seen as we're doing shout-outs to family members, my daughter is called Eireann. She wears that name with pride in Central Scotland as all of my grandparents or great-grandparents were from Co Antrim or Co Armagh. Erin and its various derivatives are definitely not confined to one side or the other. ;)
