The Auntie of Anthony and Patrick Turner is Roy Hodgson’s sister. A family gathering at her house is inevitably football orientated with regular discussions on Roy’s team selection and tactics for the forthcoming European Championship.
Every supporter wants to be sitting in the stands watching their favourite team play their best and some may then be inspired to write an England anthem but not many can say that the song was conceived on Roy’s sister’s sofa!
Anthony explains how the brilliant anthem came to life: When you’re surrounded by pictures of Roy Hodgson and listening to fascinating anecdotes of his career, it’s not surprising I dreamt about England winning the Euro, but they were chanting a song that I had never heard before. The next day all I could remember when I spoke to Patrick was some of the melody and ‘Come on England’ . Patrick suggested that we try and realise the vision, by writing a song called ‘Build us a dream’.
Though this track is undoubtedly a rather amusing piece in terms of its origin, The Turner Brothers are on a very serious musical journey having been voted ‘Crowds Favourite Band’ at Hogsozzle Festival both in 2014 and 2015 they are taking on the stage at this year’s Victorious Festival alongside Annie Mac and Manic Street Preachers.
