Martin Peters R.I.P.

Tall and elegant of posture
With a warm, endearing smile
He’d materialize into the box
In his own enduring style

Everywhere he went
As Hammer, Spur, Canary
He was every fan’s favourite
Ghosting past the unwary

Sir Alf famously quoted
“He’s Ten years ahead of his time”
And in 1966
We gloriously caught him in his prime

And so we remember with fondness
As we sadly chant his name
Condolences to his family
For a true Gentleman of the Game
