This morning (11th July) this KLFM veteran forward put out the call to support England in the World Cup.

Simon Rowe sent out the appeal to rename the Southgates Roundabout in King's Lynn in honour of the Three Lions Manager.

He had to dig in deep to get the message out there but as we edged into injury time for the appeal - we got a winner!

The leader of Norfolk County Council heard Simon's appeal and made the last minute substitution.

Andrew Proctor called KLFM and said:

"I heard what you're talking about and this is an absolutely fantastic idea!

people are already going around the gareth southgates roundabout!

 

"Certainly from my view and the County Council - we are very happy to support this.

"Think it through too - it could be worth that extra goal that gets us through!"

"Gareth Southgate is a pretty modest man and I am sure he would approve of this himself.

"Let's try to get this information to him to try and give the boys a gee up for tonight!"

The roundabout has been named after the England Manager until 20th July.
