Gary Ablett – 1965-2012

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Ablett played the Goodison soiree
After a Red debut given by Kenny
First man with Liverpool and Everton
To lift the FA Cup at Wembley

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Storming the league in eighty eight
Deadly with Barnes on the left flank
Lost the FA Cup to Plough Lane
Dons halting the unstoppable tank

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 2 league titles, 2 FA Cups
Youth flourished under “Seb’s” watchful eye
Aged forty six he succumbed to life
Football bids Gary Ablett goodbye

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Number7
