Montgomery of Sunderland

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The Unlikely Lads went to the Final
to tackle an “unbeatable” foe
But sometimes miracles happen
as Mighty Leeds should know

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 An impossible dream was coming true
when Porterfield crashed his goal
The Roker boys found their voices
as Sunderland assumed control

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Monty pushed away Cherry’s header
then scrambled quickly to his feet
Turned a Lorimer special onto the bar
in an astonishing goalkeeping feat

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Stokoe’s joyous victory sprint
filled the Wearsiders with delight
The greatest save in Wembley history
was folklore by the Saturday night
