Owen turns Scout!

England striker Michael Owen cast his eye over a selection of future international hopefuls as Loughborough Dynamo and Hinckley United Juniors both enjoyed a dream day out at Wembley Stadium.

The Loughborough Dynamo and Hinckley United under-10 teams joined more than 700 children from across the country at the annual McDonald's National Football Festival as 55 Charter Standard grass-roots clubs were invited to strut their stuff at England's HQ.

Both sets of youngsters enjoyed an action-packed day of coaching and mini-tournaments, including expert tuition from former West Ham United midfielder and FA Cup winner Geoff Pike.

Loughborough Dynamo manager Justin Bowley and Hinckley United boss David Webster were delighted with the opportunity.

Owen, who joined World Cup winner and McDonald's director of football Sir Geoff Hurst at Wembley, is hopeful some of the youngsters on show might one day play for England.

"It was fantastic to see so many children enjoying their football," said Owen, speaking on behalf of McDonald's – an FA official community partner.

"It's a festival of football so it is all about enjoying the sport, and getting a chance to play at Wembley is a superb opportunity. I'm sure we'll see one or two go on to play football at a high level but, at this stage, it's about the children enjoying themselves."
