A Club Legend


In that memorable Grand Final such a great game he did play
But the man he was two decades back he sure is not today
Now in his early fifties the years have left him gray
Time even takes care of the best as some are known to say
In that memorable Grand Final he was the best on ground
And the cheers of his club supporters in his ears did resound
Like the other surviving members of that Premiership team his better days long gone
For anyone time does not wait it just ticks on and on
But to the club supporters he's still a legend and a legend he'll remain
And those who watched him in his footballing days fond memories do retain
Of the dashing onballer who for the club played many a marvellous game
The passage of time may have left him slower but the passage of time has not dimmed his fame
He was a great footballer when he was in his prime
But that was twenty years ago and that's going back in time.
