Bournville Catering Equipment’s MD John McEvoy has caused a stir online with a football-related song he created.
In tribute to the England team’s efforts at Euro 2016 in France, McEvoy’s lyrics include: “We’ve got Dele Dele Alli, we’ve got Kane.
“We’ve got Cahill, Hart and Rooney. We will reign.
“We’ve got Rose and Eric Dier, England are on fire.
“Vardy scores for England once again.”
Daughter, Sophie, the Solihull-based dealer’s sales executive, posted the home video of her father singing the song online and reported that between the two websites it has been featured on, it has already clocked up nearly 1.5m views.
She told local newspaper, the Birmingham Mail: “He is loving it, but he’s not letting the fame go to his head yet.
“He was in France last week for the Russian match, but managed to get out of there safely.
“He wrote the song to send to my brother Jack who is over there at the moment.
“He hasn’t got a clue how to use his phone, so I offered to film it and send it to him.
“I put it on Facebook and everyone went mad. I think he’s hoping for a Number 1!”

This isn’t the first time McEvoy has had a brush with online stardom.
In 2014, Catering Insight reported on his efforts in the ‘ice bucket challenge’ to raise money for the ALS Association.
