DRFC (In praise of Leo Fortune-West, a.k.a. the Emile Heskey of South Yorkshire)

Oh Doncaster, Oh Doncaster,
The mighty Rovers reign;

The greatest team in South Yorkshire,
You drive me quite insane -
You play so well against the best,
Then lose to someone lame.

A pound of flesh, a virgin child,
I would sacrifice to your cause,
Just hoof it up into the box,
And hope some donkey scores.


Are 4 successive promotions and a successful European run just too much to ask for?
