A plot of land that served them well.
But now LFC have decided to sell.
A training ground for many a year.
But an Academy move now is near.
The Melwood walls got a lot higher.
With added twists of barbed wire.
With holes filled in, kept eyes away.
Innocent photographers kept at bay.
No sitting on walls, or on Dads back.
To get a glimpse of defence or attack.
Now prison like security, no real need.
Just ‘them and us’ another dirty deed.
And when the reds are Kirby bound.
What’ll become of this old ground?
Donate it to the locals, an LFC treat!
For once let money take a back seat.
Give the kids a park, a football theme.
But that idea was just my pipe dream.
As the club aren’t short of a bob or two.
But they sold the land for houses new.
