So farewell then Ledley Breton King
You gave us your all …your everything.
A callow youth debuted for us in 1996
Was even then a thoroughbred with wily tricks.
Cut from Captain cloth from head to toe
We prayed that you would never go.
But no one knew what was to be
Blighted by that bloody knee.
Your training regime was quite unique
A dozen laps in Levy’s pool – sometimes twice a week.
But this isn’t goodbye old pal, just au revoir
We need you as our Ambassad0r.
