Grassroots Not Gravy-Train

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 200 souls in the pouring rain
Week in week out all here the same
Not for glory or the glimmer of fame
Grassroots for me not gravy train

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Print match programme the odd refrain
22 footballers taking the pain
A standing terrace like youth again
Grassroots for us no gravy train

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 No PPV No VAR to blame
These volunteers they are the game
In safe hands long may they reign
Grassroots is boss no gravy train.


For Padiham Fc and all of our non-league grassroots football clubs who have been vital to us all through covid-19.
