Bolton Allstarz group produce Vindaloo video to cheer on England squad
MOVE on Paddy McGuinness, these young Bolton dancers fly the English flag as they support Gareth Southgate’s team in the Euro 2020 final.
Bolton Coach Caitlin Power Allstarz had the idea to put her own twist on the hit song “Vindaloo” by recording a video cheering on the Three Lions.
The video was shot at St Paul’s Community Center, Halliwell Road and it shows the boys and girls in the group showing off their skills and dancing to the song.
The 19-year-old coach said: “During the lockdown we made videos to bring all the kids together and they said they were watching football. So I thought why not come and support the country.
“They were thrilled with the idea and some of the kids missed the game to do it, so we wanted to bring England to the Allstarz.
“It was nice to see about 30 or 40 kids involved and it would have been more, but we had a lot of isolated people.
“We thought Vindaloo was the best song ever and Paddy McGuinness was involved in the last one.
“The kids loved it.
“We will be cheering on England in the final as the trophy is obviously coming home.”
Caitlin’s grandmother, Alison Power, who leads the group, was thrilled with the video’s success.
She said: “My granddaughter has been at the club since she was two and is now a coach.
“She came up with the idea to do it and we asked the children to come to the session in red and white or English kits.
“In the video there is a lady called Pam Clarke who was knitting what matched the lyrics and she usually knits while we have our church session.
“We were hoping to have a mother, father and grandmother for the song, but we couldn’t, but Caitlin’s grandfather Gary Shakespeare adapted to the dance.”
This is not the first time the group has taken center stage in sport as it was the half-time entertainment of the Warrington v St Helens Challenge Cup final in 2019.
