George Curtis was his name
Built like a brick outhouse
Iron Man was his nickname.
When the going got tough
Iron Man was in his element
Born to be a leader of men.
A captain leads by example
That means on and off the pitch
Respect earned by actions.
He stood proud on the pitch
Sleeves rolled up on strong arms
Sweat and mud on Sky Blue kit.
He didn’t need a captains armband
The opposition knew who he was
You didn’t get called Iron Man for nowt.
Who would I want in the trenches ?
George ” Iron Man ” Curtis that’s who
A captain in every sense of the word !
