Cup Draw

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Eighty balls popping noisily,
nestling nicely in the velvet bag,
waiting to be drawn out
by the trembling hand of
a hero from yesteryear.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 First team up – not us,
another team in red
with more pedigree and
history than we can ever
dream of.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Former European champions
pitted against the minnows
from the Conference.
David versus Goliath and
all those other cliches.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Well into the draw now
and still no sign.
Waiting anxiously for the
emergence of number 42;
a home tie would be great!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Praying that it won’t be
a short away trip to local
rivals from the Southern Premier.
A dreaded defeat and I would
be pilloried by all my pupils!!



There’s still nervous expectation when the names are drawn out of the hat for the F.A. Cup. Part 2 to follow shortly.
