“Cup Nerves”

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Defeat is simply inconceivable
Totally unbelievable
The Musselmen from Shoreham
Should be no threat
Lymington and New Milton
Littlehampton Town
Tunbridge Wells
Need I go on?
No wonder there’s alarm bells
In my head
And butterflies of dread
In my stomach.
Forty five minutes
Until kick off.



I wrote this on the bus to the ground today, before we played Sussex County Leaguers Shoreham, in the first qualifying round of the FA Cup. final score: Dulwich Hamlet 6, Shoreham 0!
