Sir: In his article (Pringle's perspective suits Charlton", 13 March) Glenn Moore describes Martin Pringle, the Charlton footballer, as "a dark-skinned Swede with an English name".

It is possible that Mr Moore may have fallen into the common error of believing that Scotland is part of England. Alternatively, he may be unaware that Pringle is in fact one of the most Scottish of names; unlike many of the names widely regarded as being Scottish, its origins are not Irish and can be traced to an identifiable location north of the border.
