1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Grandad:
A red shale Rec
In a city’s heart
A heavy leather ball
Boots over your ankles
Button up shirts.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Grandson:
Soft moorland turf
In a Pennine village
A lightweight ball
Aerodynamic boots
Sweat control shirts.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Grandad:
Dank city stadium
Dads on pub corners
Kids, lemonade and crisps.
Cold, open stands
Cold, frozen hands.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Grandson:
Out of town luxury
Darks corners gone
Multi food outlets
Warm, rain free stands
Coffee warmed hands.
