A CATCHY song called Let’s Go and Win for Eng­land urges Wayne Rooney and his team­mates to go out and at­tack in the World Cup.

The com­poser is singer and gui­tarist Trevor Os­borne, of Collard Road, Willes­bor­ough, who feels if Eng­land can de­velop a strong be­lief in them­selves they can bring the tro­phy home.

His song is the lat­est en­try re­ceived for the KM Group’s com­pe­ti­tion to get peo­ple to cre­ate a rous­ing Eng­land an­them to make the Three Lions roar.

Trevor, 48, said: “My song has a ter­races-like feel to it – with a catchy cho­rus. If you hear it more than once you can be hum­ming it all day.

“It ends with a good rip-roar- ing fi­nale.”

The KM Group is urg­ing as many peo­ple in the county as pos­si­ble to come for­ward with their songs. All they have to do is record their an­them and email it in an MP3 for­mat to song­foren gland@thek­m­

Trevor is a keen foot­ball fan him­self and has played since the age of 5 in­clud­ing for his school. He holds a BA hon­ours de­gree in So­cial Sci­ences but pur­sued in­stead the life of a mu­si­cian.

“I might never be­come a mil­lion­aire but I’m happy to be a mu­si­cian. It’s who I am.”

Clos­ing date for en­tries is May 21. Then from May 24 to 28 a spe­cial panel of Eng­land-lov­ing mu­sic fans will short­list the top en­tries.

And from June 1 to June 9, these will then be played on kmfm and on a spe­cial sec­tion of www.ken­ton­ where peo­ple can lis­ten and text vote for their favourite.

The an­them with the most votes will be an­nounced on June 11 – the day be­fore Eng­land’s cam­paign kicks off.

The win­ner will get a top record­ing ses­sion and also have a video pro­duced to go with their song.
