A Christmas Wish

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Summer season brings delights
Balmy July Friday nights
It has been better for our game
There’s things I long for all the same
I miss games on St Stephens Day
Exiles home for holidays
Stand together shoe to shoe
As a freezing wind cuts you in two
Halt time Bovril such a treat
You can no longer feel your feet
Back to the pub, real fire burns
Hot toddy makes your feet return
Post match sessions were sublime
I miss football at Christmas time.


It’s hard to believe its 8 years since our last Christmas game.
Dec 27th 2002 Cork City defeated Bray Wanderers by 3 goals to 1 with a John O’Flynn hat trick.
