Walking the Line

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Anonymous as a linesman
Is truly to be seen and not heard
Referees assistants? yeah right
Not famous like Poll
Grabbing headlines with cards
Never controversial
Like Riley
Well perhaps
When the urge takes
An early flag
A late flag
Just to let ’em know
You’re there like
Influence never wavers
And the players
Keeps them on their toes
In a straight and narrow line.



can’t think of any famous linesmen/women.

Editor’s note :
Parry – you’re forgetting the time Jimmy Hill famously took to the line as an emergency lino !
