The FIFA World Cup kicked off in Russia on Thursday – and one Worle club got into the spirit by recording a song for the radio.

BBC Radio Bristol invited Worle Football Club to record a song to coincide with the tournament.

The team sang New Order’s World In Motion, which was produced for the England football team’s World Cup campaign in 1990.

The song, which reached number one in the UK singles chart, is known for featuring a rap by footballer John Barnes, a role taken on by Worle captain Barry Flynn.

Worle Football Club is not the only Weston group to record a song for the competition.

A group of friends, called The Lockerz, released a charity single called They Think It’s All Over.

The video has been watched by more than 9,000 people on YouTube.

England, who are hoping to win the tournament for the first time in 52 years, will kick-off their campaign on Monday.
