Net one, pearl one

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Knitting the defence together
The sweeper needles all around him
With his constant tugging
And woolly excuses to the ref
But cleverly switching the pattern of play
He weaves his way up the pitch
Threads a defence splitting pass
Then nets, with a peach of a goal
From a clever cross, ‘stitch that’, he says
Connecting with a looping curl
And spun home, a real pearl


The one my granny could have scored!
