Champions 2003 Penpics

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Stevie Williams cut our losses,
Though he seldom comes for crosses,
Super Keeper, Pride of Wales,
Stopping shots, he never fails.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Bomber Heary, tough as nails,
When the wind is in his sails.
Surging forwards with great pace,
Putting wingers in their place.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Super Kevin heads it clear,
Won’t let centre-forwards near,
See him rising at the back,
Foiling every quick attack.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Macca leads the line composed,
Roaring when he’s left exposed,
Reads the game, controls the play,
Decisively he boots away.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Davie Crawley gets real tough
If the winger’s quick enough,
Packs a fairly meaty shot,
Among the attributes he’s got.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Davie Rogers, Super Scouse,
Has the talent and the nous,
Distribution’s not too clever,
But he won’t surrender ever.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Bould Jim Crawford runs all night,
Shelbourne’s shining midfield light.
Bandy legged, he’ll never yield,
Cov’ring every inch of field.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Stewie Byrne shuts down and chases,
Turns up in the strangest places,
On his line, or in attack,
In the midst of all the flak.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Thomas Morgan, calm, collected,
Does whatever is expected,
When a clear, cool head is needed,
Tom’s the man with hair receded.

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Ollie Cahill has awesome speed,
With many subtle tricks indeed,
Skinning full backs is his trade,
With all his clever skills displayed.

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 Weso has the power to thrill,
With awesome, praise-inducing skill,
Dribbling sideways, making chances,
Leading others merry dances.

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 Jason Byrne just bangs them in,
Turns a draw into a win,
Poaching goals with seeming ease,
Brings defenders to their knees.

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 Jamie has ability,
Matched to versatility,
Great defender, target man,
Scores as only Jamie can.

14 Leave a comment on verse 14 0 Richie Baker, spring heeled Jack,
Adds some width to Shels attack,
Whips in crosses with precision,
Causing goalie indecision.

15 Leave a comment on verse 15 0 Ger McCarthy, young and fast,
Fav’rite when he knocks it past,
Makes defenders make mistakes,
And oftentimes picks up the breaks.

16 Leave a comment on verse 16 0 Stephen Geoghegan, wise old head,
League of Ireland, born and bred,
Legend now of Tolka Park,
He has always made his mark.

17 Leave a comment on verse 17 0 Ger Rowe runs and gives his all,
Chases each and every ball,
Elbows flailing, running wild,
Like a great, untutored child.

18 Leave a comment on verse 18 0 Dessie Baker, quality,
Fighting back from injury,
Deserves an awful lot for that,
But God! I wish he’d lose the hat.

19 Leave a comment on verse 19 0 Nutsy Fenlon stands defiant,
Small in size, though now a giant,
Takes the knocks and bounces back
Forza Shelbourne! What’s the craic?
