My special place……..man and boy.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 This is where my faith was born
Where as a boy was brought
This special place where dreams were formed
And countless battles fought.
This hallowed turf where heroes played
And enduring and magical memories made
And on this field where once I saw
Mathews, Puskas, Best and Moore
Artists supreme,Immortal men
Never to pass this way again
May St James’ Park forever more
Echo to your famous roar.

Notes

The great Ferenc Puskas may have been past his best and had certainly added a few inches to his waistline when he played at SJP making a guest appearance during Jackie Milburn’s testimonial game many years ago. Wonderful memories.
