Forty thousand met him at the Bridge
in a sort of imminent way,
left the opposition for dead
with off the ball on the ball sway.
Cheeky was he, with a child like grin
yet played the game like a man,
individuality on his day
sublimely fitted the game plan.
Complete honesty was his trait
an example for the youth of today,
respect for life, love for his trade
to all an enigma on display!
