TWO “massive” football fans are hoping their song can inspire Scotland to glory at the European Championships in Germany.

Gary Fraser and Gordon Anthoney – better known as G-Funk – are hoping Not 4 the Want of Tryin’ could be belted out on the terraces by the Tartan Army from Munich to Stuttgart at Euro 2024.

The county duo will be cheering on Scotland, who kick off the tournament tomorrow (Friday) against hosts and three-time winners Germany.

Manchester United fan Gary, who lives in Tranent, told the Courier: “It is an old song we released in a band called Gilchrist.

“We have revamped it and are trying not to be ironic about Scotland.

“It is now we have got it up and running, and it is very anthemic.

“The chorus is very uplifting and we are trying to get behind the team, get it out to the Tartan Army.”

Gary and Gordon, who lives in Cockenzie and supports Celtic, have known each other for more than 35 years, playing in different bands together.

G-Funk was formed on the back of the Covid-19 pandemic, seeing the pair writing songs together again.

Both write lyrics, while Gordon, who works for Standard Life, has produced the latest track.

The duo, both 58, are keen for the song to prove a hit and win the backing of the thousands of travelling fans, who will also be cheering on their country against Switzerland and Hungary in the group phase.

Already, G-Funk have put together a music video ahead of the tournament.

Gary, who is a team leader in the civil service, laughed: “I think, traditionally, there are always songs that come out at the tournaments.

“I don’t want to be disparaging but some of them are not really that good!”

The pair’s song features iconic lines of commentary from the country’s successful qualifying campaign, which saw them taste defeat just once as they finished behind Spain.

Gary added: “Hopefully it gets picked up.

“Who knows, we might get across there but tickets are impossible to come by now!”
