I Was There – Year 9 Football Moments

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I Was There

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I was there when it began
When the snow fell to the ground
That cold January day
When we scraped past Blackpool

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I was there at Anfeild
When my heart stopped
The crowd went silent
As Brian Howard got a 94th minute goal

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I was there as we hosted Chelsea
That day my heart belonged to football
As our striker headed the ball
All my dreams came true
As the ball shook the back of the net

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Get In There!!!!

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 The final five there’s no better feeling
you feel so alive but the losers need healing.
We sing and roar wanting goals galore
We jump around with a mighty sound.

Trying to grab that prestigious ball
Reaching touching the holy ground
Crowds of people running around.

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Running up to players giving them hugs
Will their faces be on my coffee mugs?
Losing your friends getting lost in the crowd
You’re not bothered because you’re so proud

We’re all going to ‘Wemb-erley’
Sometimes dreams really do come true
Chelsea are out and Barnsley are through

Notes

A selction of the “football” poems from the sessions with Year 9 Students at Wombwell School. Nr Barnsley 14th May 2009

“During the football poetry workshops Crispin encouraged pupils to be creative and did this using his own personal experiences. This engages the pupils and allowed them to feel more secure about expressing themselves. Pupils created their own poems about an event in their lives that had something to do with sport. The scope was widened from just football to ensure all pupils could participate and write about something they were passionate about. Pupils created some stunning poems and gained confidence within their own work to be more creative and imaginative. ”
S.Totty .English Dept.Wombwell School.” Barnsley
