With all eyes on the European Championships in France this month, one Milton Keynes football club is celebrating their own link to the finals.

City Colts were part of a BBC news feature as former MK Dons man Dele Alli pulled on the Three Lions shirt last Saturday to make his major tournament debut against Russia.

Alli, now playing for Premier League Tottenham Hotspur, was part of City Colts at a young age before leaving for Dons, and has been a great rolemodel for the youngsters in the team.

Jo Small, of City Colts, said: “It is great for them to see the determination and commitment Dele puts into his football which, with his incredible talent, are bringing him the success he deserves.

“All of us at City Colts FC are willing Dele and the rest of the England team to go all the way at the Euros – we’ll be cheering them on every step of the way.”
