Getting Closer Now

never mind the rain
where they are the sun will shine
as we go again

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 can we do the business…
can we show the world ?
football is for everyone
ev’ry boy and girl

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 the past is gone it won’t come back
ev’rything is now
time to take the reins and rise
pride will win somehow

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 waiting will be over
I can sense us winning
what is it then – I hear you ask ?
it’s The World Cup…for Women


Amazingly, 103 years after the FA banned the Women’s Game in 1920 (until 1970) the Women’s World Cup 2023 kicks off in Australia and New Zealand on Thursday 20th July.

England’s Lionesses take on Haiti in their first match on the first weekend. Brazil, USA, Sweden and all the other likely candidates will be there too . Could this be our time ?

There are some great early moring matches ahead for us here, all available free on terrestrial TV, so while you wait for the new season here or wherever… will you be watching? I know I will be glued to the screen and writing about it .

Send us your poems and haikus if you do.
