A group of Weston friends have recorded a charity World Cup song.

The Lockerz will release They Think Its All Over on April 2 to help both terminally ill children in the UK and disadvantaged people abroad.

The band were formed in 2016 when they created a song for football’s European Championships titled Bring It Home.

Following a split due to work commitments, the group reformed last year with new members and now hope to be bigger than ever.

They were put together by Colin Erison, known as CJ, who has also penned and produced their latest offering.

He said: “We are supporting all the 32 nations and it is not an England song.

“It took us one year to produce and record, and at present we have thousands of followers which are growing by the day.

“We are hoping to make the history books by being the first number one at a World Cup.”

The song, which also features a rap by MC Motion, was recorded at Windmill Lane Recording Studios in Ireland before a final take and mixing being done at Real World Studios near Bath.

It has been supported by dozens of celebrities from the worlds of sport and entertainment, including cricketers Peter Trego and Marcus Trescothick, and ex-footballers Shaun Goater and Andrew Cole.

The Lockerz are also giving away a VIP package for two children and a parent to watch the England v Nigeria friendly at Wembley on June 2 and are aiming to raise £100,000 to build new and improved facilities for Deepshika School in Kathmandu, Nepal.

CJ added: “We have had massive support from celebrities where they sign a copy of the CD.

“All of these CDs signed by celebrities are given away to children nominated by the public.

“These children are critically ill, some with cancer, however they are delighted to be nominated.

“We wanted to make a difference to children’s lives, therefore we picked the chance of building a new school in Nepal.

“This will give 135 children the chance of a better future and also a better future for other children.”
