This Is For Those Who Travel

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 this is for those who travel
this is for those who care
this is for those who give up their time
to follow their team evr’ywhere
this is for seeing new places
by car or by coach or by train
this is for being outnumbered
and standing outside in the rain

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 this is for those who are loyal
the faces you spot on the day
and this is for those who are faithful
who turn up at home come what may

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 this is for where you can stand up and sing
with raffles read out at half time
this is for where you can bring in a drum
or hold up your flags and your signs

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 but this is for always believing
success is a very fine line
and should it be ours in this season or next
it will happen we know in good time

For the countless fans who give up a day each week to follow their team all over the land. Door to door, this can often be 12 hours .

However low a place or division they occupy, they are there in their shirts , with their flags. At each game here at Forest Green, in the non-league recesses of the Vanarama Conference National League, when we announce the attendance , we always read out how many fans the away team have brought. The crowd always applaud them and they clap back in return. Old school respect and values.
