Sefton Council have been slammed by a Southport father after his Everton supporting son was forced to sing You’ll Never Walk Alone in class.

The Birkdale father, who did not want to be named, has written a furious letter to Sefton chief executive Dwayne Johnson to complain after his son Toby was forced to sign the Liverpool anthem at an event in the Atkinson last week.

He said “I’m disgusted that Toby and his friends, who are mostly all passionate Blues, were asked to sing that horrible song when teachers know they don’t support Liverpool. It’s disgusting you wouldn’t force someone of a different religion to sing a hymn so why is it fine to make our children sing football songs from a club they passionately hate?

“I’m disgusted.”
