DEFENDER WILLIE’S PRAYER (Burns Night 2021)

Date: 25th January 2021

To celebrate Scotland’s Bard and Ayrshire-man Robert Burns, It seems only right to give you a football themed verse, courtesy of SFSA Member M. McInnes, fittingly inspired by  Burns’s “Holy Willies Prayer”…

DEFENDER WILLIE’S PRAYER

What is the plea of a football player

When on bended knee upon the flair

He offers up his evening prayer

He asks the football deity above all

To avoid every defenders fearfu’ nightmare

Not to score an abysmal, dreadfu’ own goal!
