Football fever took over at the Swansgate Shopping Centre in Wellingborough at the weekend, as shoppers celebrated the start of Euro 2012.

The shopping centre held an event on Saturday, June 9, to mark the start of the tournament.

Shoppers gathered to get their pictures taken with David Beckham and Christiano Ronaldo lookalikes.

Many shoppers made their predictions of which team will take home the Euro 2012 cup and from those who have guessed the winning team, one winner will be selected at random on Monday, July 2, to win £250.

Children also made their own flags and took part in a ‘find the flags’ competition.

Five winners will be selected from those who scouted out all the flags placed around the centre to win a Swansgate sporting goodie bag.

Lindsay Tickner, manager of the Swansgate Shopping Centre, said: “It was a great day in the centre on Saturday, lots of people turned up to place their predictions and get their picture taken with the footballer lookalikes.”
