Faryl, who shot to fame during the 2008 series of Britain’s Got Talent, took to the pitch to sing the National Anthem at Wembley ahead of the final of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy on Sunday.

She led the crowd in a rendition of God Save The Queen before Barnsley and Oxford United battled it out.

This was the sixth time the Kettering singer has performed at Wembley.
