Notes

Another Way to Moscow:
Refers to the Forest Green Rovers flag ,(not the one in the picture above)which travelled from Forest Green, Gloucestershire to make its debut at the England/Panama World Cup match in Russia.

The actual pic from Moscow was too large a file to re-size, but it’s on the Football Poets on Facebook page.Scroll down to see it. The flag journeyed in the trusty hands of FGR/South Stand boys (making all the noise) Jamie Flagg (no pun at birth intended ) and Liam Stevie. .

Another Way:
Refers to the address of Forest Green Rovers. FGR’s ground The New Lawn is situated in the tiny hamlet of Forest Green, high above the villsge of Nailsworth, near Stroud in the Cotswolds.

Quorner flag:
Refers to the award–winning ‘Q; (Quorn ) Pies now, legendary ay FGR. Forest Green are the only all vegan club in the world.
