THE Premier League season hasn't started yet but an England coach has already been spotted in Southampton.

It wasn't Roy Hodgson but a coach bearing the England name and iconic Three Lions badge.

The surprise visit was captured on camera by Associated British Ports (ABP) staff.

In a picture uploaded to Twitter, it shows the stationary coach at a dock gate five with God's House Tower in the background.

Along with the photo, which was taken this afternoon, they tweeted the caption: “A bit of an unexpected view out of our window!”

A spokesman for ABP was unable to confirm the destination or the origin of the coach.

It was an Ellisons coach bound for the docks, they often use team coaches on there trips from the north west to the Port of Southampton, the Chelsea and England Rugby team coaches have been frequent visitors. Look out for them on cruise days.
