The Shannocks could not steal a March
At Weybourne Road this week;
The lads put tonnes of effort in
But goals – we could not seek.
The visitors from Cambridgeshire
Were organised and strong,
And, down the Splash end – noisily
Their fans burst into song!
After clipping our far post
The Hares soon took the lead:
A low ball drilled across the box
Was poked home with tame speed.
Close to the break, 1-0 it was
March goalscorer, Craig Gillies,
Knocked the wind out of our sails
And gave home fans the willies!
The restart saw the wind gain strength
Intense it was, for sure;
It must have been because March players
Kept falling to the floor!
The Reds fought on, but no goal came
Their net could not be found,
In fact, the best chance of the half
Went whizzing out the ground!
March Town pushed up – clean through they ran
With time to pick a spot;
But high and wide it fizzed towards
The Splash pool yoga lot!
The Hares held on to claim three points,
It was one of “those” games;
With Boycey and Crosby missing
We missed our bigger names!
Away to Felixstowe is next
To Dellwood Ave we’ll stroll,
All fired up to win again:
Our engine stoked with coal!
