On The Ball City.......

Recommended Posts

Forget trying to make up new songs for this, that and the other. Why don’t we just learn the first verse of our club anthem? The full rendition is awesome, and would sound great sung in the stands. I no on the cd its sung by old boys in the 50s but I believe that it could be easily learnt and really powerful. In a similar way to stoke singing Delilah or Liverpool with ‘you’ll never walk alone’.  

If you haevnt heard the full rendition (or didn’t realise there was more than one verse) then you tube it.

In the days to call, which we have left behind,

Our boyhood’s glorious game,

And our youthful vigour has declined

With its mirth and its lonesome end;

You will think of the time, the happy time,

Its memories fond recall

When in the bloom of your youthful prime

We’ve kept upon the ball

Kick off, throw in, have a little scrimmage,

Keep it low, a splendid rush, bravo, win or die;

On the ball, City, never mind the danger,

Steady on, now’s your chance,

Hurrah! We’ve scored a goal.

[/quote]Not trying to be picky, I actually agree with you but you missed a word out, funnily enough it''s the same one that is usually added.Also I wish people could get it into their heads it isn''t scrummage.
