All 15 staff members at a pub have changed their names to Wayne Rooney ahead of the World Cup.

The squad working at the Bay Horse on Bradford Road at East Ardsley, West Yorkshire, must also get used to calling their managers - previously Lee and Lorraine Kennedy - Fabio Capello.

One Wayne Rooney, formerly Joanne Hill, 23, kitchen staff at the Bay Horse, said they had all decided to change their names in a show of support for the England squad during the tournament in South Africa.

She said: "The managers wanted to do something so we all sat down and decided to do this. It's to show our support for England and show how much we're behind them."

Miss Rooney also said the name change had proved to be a hit with the pub regulars. "They think it's ace," she said, "they shout Wayne and we all turn around. They love it and think it's really funny. It has not been a hassle at all - we could change birth certificates and driving licences but because it is only temporary nobody is going to."

Miss Rooney said she was not sure how England would fare in the World Cup but she would be backing them all the way.

She also said her family and friends were having trouble remembering to call her Wayne.

"They should call me it," she said, "but it must be weird for them to get used to it."

All the staff members have certificates from the UK Deed Poll Service to prove their new identities.

They will all remain Wayne Rooney until the end of the World Cup and the process cost each of them 33.

"Sunday Bloody Sunday. What a great song. It really encapsulates the frustration of a Sunday, doesn't it? You wake up in the morning, you've got to read all the Sunday papers, the kids are running round, you've got to mow the lawn, wash the car, and you think "Sunday, bloody Sunday!"- Alan Partridge

I was born and live in England though. Blood-wise I'm half and half.

But let me rephrase.



And people wonder why I choose Ireland.
