The venue was: The Field of Dreams
For Shezza on the road,
The Shannocks were out for revenge
As this performance showed!
Big Nelly was back once again
And very soon he’d get
Another goal – this from the spot
Smashing the top left net!
The penalty was fair – although
The trip should have seen red,
And then it wasn’t long before
CBS went ahead.
Atwell smashed the equaliser
Home from a close range,
And then the “turning point” moment
That did seem rather strange!
Shane Cox made a superb tackle
Just outside of his box,
The ref harshly whipped out the red
And all plans hit the rocks!
A header from the free kick saw
Norwich score number two,
It looped in underneath the bar
And crowd unrest soon grew!
Hubbard came on for Sheringham
And just before half-time
Shorty drilled home a low free kick,
His finish most sublime!
With ten men in the second half
The Shannocks bossed the game,
Ben Boyce losing blood for the team
And then the winner came!
Another free kick, on the right
A world class goal was scored,
Nelly bent it and burst the net
And our lead was restored!
The passion was incredible
The lads fought for the shirt,
They dug deep and they got stuck in
Their quality overt.
The “sin bin” did come into use,
As Norwich lost their rag;
But Sheringham deserved the win –
Three more points in the bag!
Next up a home game at long last
Wisbech will soon be here,
And with the Reds playing so well
They should be filled with fear!
