The Cat – Peter Bonetti: 1941- 2020

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Second only to Chopper Harris
In Chelsea playing games
Edged on clean sheets by Petr Cech
Some of the clubs greatest names

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A part of the World Cup-winning squad
Bonetti didn’t get to stand on the line
He learnt from the Banks of England
A belated winners medal in 2009

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Golden career spanning three decades
Always a cool head, smile and chat
Covid-19 may restrict our lives
But we still pay tribute to the Cat
