Botley Billy

Billy Casey is the Botley United F.C. team captain
He’s just bettered his club scoring record again
In ninety matches he’s now scored twenty-three
He’s second highest scorer now just behind o.g.

About the Poem

A funny football poem about a mythical team, Botley United, which is pretty hopeless at football. Try substituting your best friend's (or worst enemy's) favourite club and its team captain into the poem to make a potent weapon with which to annoy them - provided, of course, that they don't support the same football team as you.
