LETTER: Poem titled ‘Time to be Warriors’

Marlon Harewood on the attack against Wycombe Wanderers.

Spartans, famous warriors of old,

Tenacious, audacious, brave and bold.

Let us hope their modern-day namesakes (Blyth) do not strike such fear when they draw near to Victoria Park, this Friday night.

Yet with Hartlepool United in such dire straits, home-town fans are rightly wary of what awaits if Pools don’t stand up and fight.

Now is the time to unite, and make us proud of the blue and white.

With the eyes of the nation on our town, Come on lads, don’t let us down.

Show spirit, defend well, and don’t fall back.

Be as Spartans yourselves boys – attack, attack, attack.

Ian Sim,

Hartlepool.
