The bustling square is a sea of red
We don’t entertain the blues, not here.
The barmaid wipes away her fringe
Pumping at the ale tap with brute force
A Guinness standing solemn as it rests
And fivers are thrust over with ferocity
‘Serve me next, I was next line’.
But soon they’re gone as match day calls
The turnstyles sing as crowds pass through
And scarves are waved in patriotic flow.
We had the Women’s FA Cup Final today and it was lovely to see it televised and attended by thousands. Things are really looking up for Women’s football after the Lionnesses won the Euros last year.
It is wonderful to see that even though we don’t have equal coverage and certainly not equal pay, we are getting there. I can envisage a world where there is equality in sport.
Well done to those ladies who played this afternoon, and thank you to tthe Prince of Wales for going to present trophies. It is only when people with a big platform take an interest that the rest of the world do too.
One thought on “Pulling pints on match day”
I agree, Rachel; it’s terrific that women’s sports are getting more attention. We still have a ways to go, but well done Lionesses, and it is exciting! The more people see that popularity as ‘normal,’ the easier it will get for those to come.
