Football comes home in Melton as fans celebrate World Cup victory
There were joyous celebrations at the final whistle as Gareth Southgate’s men completed a 2-0 victory to put the country through to our first semi-final in the tournament for 28 years.
People hugged each other and beer went flying in The Cutting Room in St Mary’s Way and there were huge roars of delight at The Harboro Hotel, on Burton Street, and The White Hart, in Sherrard Street.
Melton town centre was reportedly deserted when the Sweden match kicked off and cricketers playing for local clubs paused their matches to allow players and spectators to watch the action from Russia.
