Honiton musician Scott Phillips is bidding for a slice of World Cup action - by recording his own England song.
Come On Lads, performed under the pseudonym The Peaceful Hooligan, is now at the centre of a Facebook campaign to make it the England team's official World Cup tune. Scott, front man of Honiton-based Sweet Black Angels, plays football himself - for Offwell Rangers.
His grandad played for Leeds United and his third cousin, John Sillett, led Coventry City to FA Cup victory.
John's brother, Peter Sillett, represented England in the 1958 World Cup, alongside Honiton's own football hero Maurice Setter in the year that Pele made his World Cup debut for Brazil.
