A Football Poem: We Are Accrington Stanley

We are Accrington Stanley

football club, and we drink

a lot of milk,

And when we’re on the

football pitch – we pass the

ball like silk.


We are in division two, but

we’re battling for promotion,

Our aim is to reach the dizzy

heights of league division



We want to play the Seasiders –

the team on the seaside,

And go for a paddle in the

sea – and beat the incoming



Blackpool have found some

form – that is evident,

But we could honestly beat

them – and cause a big



We’d also relish the kipper

squad – they’re just up

the coast,

We could beat them easy –

but we really don’t want

to boast!


They are Fleetwood Town,

and they are also playing


But if we can beat them

too – our team would really



We are Accrington Stanley,

and we now are on the


But who ironed our comfy

shorts – they’ve used too

much starch!


But if we drink our milk –

that will give us more


Then we can beat any-

one – even Manchester



We also played our

hearts out in a cup-tie


We really did play so

well – and we really

made our name.


We played a well-

fought cup-tie and

we beat Preston North

End Football Club,

All thanks to a great

team effort – by the

brilliant; Accrington

Stanley – and Billy Kee,

their football sub.
