Throw in king Brooks

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Midgely United Amateur
Flung with missile trajectory
Lengthiest football throw ever
To create a little bit of history

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 From Brooksbank Sports College
Danny Brooks the meek hero
Chucked from nowhere to the fore
With a designer ‘flip’ throw

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 ‘I used to be a gymnast’
Claimed the lad from Elland, Halifax
So from a running leap he became
A log in the record tracks

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 ‘I could do a flip holding a ball’
Brooks keyed up his vocal chord
‘If I could get the timing and angles right
‘I could beat the world record

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 It was 49.78 metres
Launched with a prayer and kiss
More than half a length of pitch
And a new entry for Guinness

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Inquisitiveness from Stan Pulis?
What with a pummel that raps fairies
On a sixpence for Tuncay or Fuller
New Delap at the Potteries

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Number 7
