Another year comes to an end
And what a cracking show
Was put on down at Weybourne Road –
It’s four wins in a row!
A mascot led the Shannocks out,
The bumper crowd pitch side,
Focused their eyes in eager mood
And noise was amplified.
Although the first half – scrappy(ish)
(Chances at both ends: missed),
The match-winning moment arrived
After a Cheesy ‘twist!’
Big Lawrence – straight after the break
Turned past his man with ease,
And powered home to do the biz –
‘Grate’ work by Mr Cheese!
The atmosphere was tasty and
‘Streat Kitchen’ was the same,
Mouth-watering food and football
A yummy derby game!
With Ghosts creating chances and
Ref whipping out his card,
The Shannocks army – to a man
Defended their rearguard!
Captain Cox arranged his troops
Crosby – man of the match
Drove on the lads; for Fakenham
Though – nothing ‘real’ would hatch!
They huffed and puffed but brave we stood
Our wall would not erode,
A hard-fought win, but all the best
To our friends down the road.
It’s two clean sheets now on the trot
In home games for the Reds,
Up the league we soar once more
But on will stay our heads!
We’ll climb the table rung by rung
And into the new year,
March on we shall in cheerful tone
With not a thing to fear!
It’s over eighty miles next week
When we land in Cornard;
A Happy New Year to you all
From this Sheringham bard!
