DIARY: Paragon team kick football into touch

If you were sick of soccer before the first kick of Euro 96, then spare a thought for the football-crazed staff at Paragon who have recently endured more than their fair share of extra time.

If you were sick of soccer before the first kick of Euro 96, then spare

a thought for the football-crazed staff at Paragon who have recently

endured more than their fair share of extra time.



In recent weeks, the Paragon squad has been working on the FA Carling

Premiership, MasterCard’s sponsorship of Euro 96 and Korea’s application

to host the 2002 World Cup.



But all this football frenzy has yet to inspire Paragon chairman Julia

Thorn to follow the beautiful game.



‘I’m afraid that I’m one of those people who always has to keep asking

which end they should be shooting at,’ she admits.



However, she confides that, funnily enough, some of her staff have not

found having to attend matches a terribly onerous task - particularly

those ones which, courtesy of Carling, involve that not unpopular

combination of beer and footie.
