Gold disc for Euro anthem choir
S.F.X Boys' Choir Liverpool
The song has been a hit for The Farm twice before
A Liverpool boys' choir is to be awarded a gold disc after reaching number 10 in the charts with its football anthem, All Together Now 2004.

The S.F.X Boys' Choir sang on the reworked version of The Farm's 1990 hit, remixed by Radio 1's DJ Spoony.

The 24 members of the choir will be presented with the disc at St Francis Xavier's College in Woolton.

The boys - who are aged between 11 and 13 years old - are to perform on Top of the Pops on Friday.

All Together Now has already been a hit for Liverpool band The Farm on two previous occasions in the 1990s.

The boys are tremendous ambassadors for the city
Sir Bob Scott
Keith Knowles, who formed the choir in 1994, said: "I am beginning to run out of words to describe how incredible this whole experience is.

"The boys are thoroughly enjoying themselves and I am very proud of the fact we have made the top 10 in our first week."

Sir Bob Scott, chairman of the Liverpool Culture Company, said: "This is a wonderful achievement for the boys.

"The boys from St Francis Xavier's College are tremendous ambassadors for the city."

The choir is set to tour America in August, performing in New York, Washington and Boston.
