Casdon Soccer


Alan Ball was in midfield

Bob Latchford my centre forward

And Gordon West in goal.

I was an inside forward

A dashing, flashing super striker

Match winner and wonder player

Loved by all the Everton faithful.

My name was Bobby

A real football player’s name

Every match was a chance to shine

And revel in fame and glory.

Luckily I scored a wonder goal

That won the F.A. Cup

My name went down in history

Loved by all the Everton faithful.

Hours and hours playing games

Winning leagues and matches

Taking Everton to the top

The greatest team in history.

Hopes and dreams

Eternally remembered

In a wonderful football game

Forever treasured.

    Excellent. Playing games and pretending to be real players is the stuff childhoods are made of.
