The Hutch

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 ‘Who’s the greatest ever player
to have worn the sky blue ? ‘
that’s a really tough question
as I can name quite a few.
But,if I have to say just one
who is better than the rest,
as he oozed class and style
and for me he is the best.
That footballer is Tommy Hutchison
signed from Blackpool in 1972,
he was a wizard on the wing
there was nothing he couldn’t do.
Defenders would have to kick him
many would cut up rough,
but the ‘ Hutch’ took it all in his stride
as he was strong, wiry, and tough.
He had brilliant close ball control
it appeared it was stuck to his feet,
his mazy runs were magical
they’d get you up out of your seat.
And he scored a goal against Arsenal
one of the best ever seen at Highbury,
he netted with a sublime strike
after beating players one,two,and three.
So for me it has to be the ‘ Hutch ‘
what more is for me to say ?
he is a Coventry City legend
the greatest I’ve ever seen play.

Notes

Tommy Hutchison was born on the 22nd of September 1947. So it’s a happy birthday on that day to arguably Coventry City’s greatest ever player. Sky Blue fans voted Tommy the top player of the top flight era, and I go along with that too.
We all have favourite footballers at our clubs, but that doesn’t mean necessarily they are the best.
But Tommy Hutchison was a great player.
