Match day poetry was back at Bower Fold for stalybridge Celtic's opening game against Bradford Park avenue on Tuesday and will be a regular feature before every home game this season.
Season ticket holder stuart vallantine started off with his poem "No Close Shaves"
"Final day of the last season,
That was a real heart stopper.
What a strange finale, beyond reason.
By a whisker, in the Vanarama.
A new look Celtic awaits us,
Security the mission.
Continuity, consistency, no fuss.
Fearlessness, three cups of ambition.
Play for the long haul, passing or long ball.
42 games and cups; we mustn't stall.
Keep our heads, start afresh, show some pride.
Sit down or stand, for one glorious ride.
No close shaves'll do (like last time).
Great to see, it made good copy.
Only this time we shouldn't cut it fine.
Each fixture, onwards to victory."
