CHAPTER SIX

"One Lion on our shirt"

After yet another joyful week of availability and dropouts (9) was follwed by another trouncing.  Just makes it all worthwhile!  We were destroyed by a formidable bowling display from an opening bowler who finished with the figures of 10-5-6-6 and half of them were extras!  However, I did apologise to their skipper for david Fowles effort (25*) at No.10 for taking it from 22-8 to 48-9!

Anyway, to commerate Euro 2004 and the golden days of the pride for playing for the 4s, me and the lads visitined Abbey Road studios to record a CD single to raise awareness for the deprived 4 XI players at the club!

We're coming home,

We're coming home,

The 4th XI is coming home,

We're coming home (x 4).........

Everyone seems to know the score

They've seen it all before (Guildford, Addlestone, Olinda etc)

They just know, cos their sure,

but..............

The Carnival gonna throw it away,

But we know they can't play, we just know they can't play,

cos we remember,

 

One Iion on the shirt,

The Carnival Trophy still gleaming,

Six years of hurt,

Never stopped me dreaming.

 

So many jokes and too many beers,

oh those so many spillages and tears,

that weigh you down, through the years

but I still see that,

Smithy spinning the ball,

Hockers getting a five for,

Penners belting the ball,

and Windy dancing.

 

One Lion on the shirt,

The Carnival Trophy still gleaming,

Six years of aftershock,

Never stopped us heaving.

 

I know that was then but it won't be again!

 

We're coming home etc

The 4th XI is coming home etc (x 4)

 

One Lion on the shirt,

The Carnival Trophy still gleaming,

Six years of drop outs,

never stopped me ringing.

 

Talk about the 4th XI coming home,

and then one night in the Park,

we were weak and we had no spark,

but I remember...

Uzzy ready for war,

Awais (turning up) late as before,

Munge certain to score (on the cricket pitch)

and Windy dancing.

 

One Lion on the shirt,

The Carnival Trophy still gleaming,

Six years of Gerry Cottles,

Never stopped us leaving.
