(To the tune of Sunshine on Leith, by The Proclaimers)

Our hearts weren’t broken. Our girls weren’t broken
One down, sorrow, sorrow, sorrow
We weren’t for choking, with effort we’re soaking

Laura saw it, she claimed it
She smashed it, She scored it

Our tears were drying, the Leith girls kept trying
Their corner, thumped home, 2-1, half time
Second half we’re trying, no chance of crying

With great skill, and fine-ness
Our girls had no shyness
While they’re worth their room on this earth
Rose girls will fight for you
While the Chief put Sunshine On Leith
Lucy crossed it, Becky smashed it
We were level, and pushing forward

The game was quite open, no effort was token
No Sorrow, no sorrow, no sorrow, no sorrow
With our pressure up-soaking, Leith girls weren’t broken

Beth proved her worth, as she dived to the earth
The ball bounced off of her shoe
While the Chief put Sunshine On Leith
I'll thank him for a great game
From the Rose Girls, ‘cos they’re magic.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

An exciting, skill-packed and thoroughly enjoyable game today between the Linlithgow Rose Whites and a very much improved Leith team saw the game end all square – probably on balance a fair result. With apologies to Anna, Rheanna, Ellie, Kirsty and Zoe, I just couldn’t crowbar you name into the song.

(Apologies also the Proclaimers for massacring the greatest song in the history of football)
