I support Forest Green and many regard me as the poet of the club. I started an independant page on the fans forum called Poetry Corner. At first it was only me that posted although it was read by an increasing number of fans. Now many people have begun to post poems to the site and it is beginning to take on a life of it’s own.
I wouldn’t claim that my poems have any great artistic merit at all. I have written verse in all forms for most of my adult life and the forum has given me an outlet to write poems and reworked versions of lyrics to a football audience.
This football poets website will give me the impetus to write verse not just about FGR.
