Finney’s Final Year

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Tom Immortalised
Navigating Stamford Bridge
Through water – “The splash”

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Tom the elusive
Blackburn’s Leyland on the deck
The goal now beckons

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Tom the reliable
Bert Trautmann dives to his right
The ball is past him

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Tom the departing
Twenty two sing Auld Lang Syne
A wave and goodbye.

Sir Tom Finney R.I.P
