Ball of fun

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Every team wants one
a little ball of puppy dog energy
yapping and snapping away at heels
and yet as loveable and loyal a servant
you couldn’t hope to meet

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Nimble on his feet
and as fit as bedamned
a small package crammed
with fun and laughter
and uniquely –
a World Cup winners medal

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Alan Ball R.I.P.

In memory of Alan Ball, who died of a heart attack this morning.

Condolences to his family and friends.

BBC Obituary here

What I loved most about Alan Ball, was the way he absolutely adored his father, Alan Ball Snr, another legendary football man.
