Bob Fullam terrifies the Italians

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Bob Fullam had a fearsome shot
That frightened the Italians.
(‘Twas used in training camps a lot
By army corps battalions)
When he placed it on the spot,
They fingered their medallions,
And tears ran very hard and hot
As though they’d chopped up scallions.



(Ireland’s first ever home game in 1926 versus Italy B. According to folklore, the Italians were so afraid of Bob Fullam’s powerful shot, they begged the Irish to stop him taking free kicks!)
