‘Poem for the Minors’

Since 1986 thirty years have passed,

The team of ’16 have got us back at last.

Marty and Fred will lead the boys in green,

We hope that you all can achieve your dream.

The amber and black will be hard to beat,

But to do the double would be such a feat.

Soon you will take the field in the Athletic Grounds,

And if you are victorious there’ll be a mighty sound.

You sat in our seats not all that long ago,

On the day of the final we hope your talent will show.

The school is behind you all of the way,

So go out and shine on your special day.


As we are currently studying poetry in literacy, P7B decided to compose a poem to wish the Mullaghbawn minor football team well in their upcoming county final. Best wishes to the team and management ahead of the big match.
