Cramlington-based poet Pippa Little who has won numerous awards for her work and will take up a Royal Literacy Fellowship at Newcastle University in 2015 has sent in the poem below.
An announcement about Pippa’s further involvement with the club will be made soon.
Pippa is married to supporter Bob Little who, along with his sons, has followed the Spartans for many years.
‘Up For The Cup’
This special green and white one
Bought from the supporters’ shop several Christmases ago
And not by some divine intervention
Even chipped yet
Makes a robust cup of tea after a cold afternoon
Cheering on the team. Hot, brown, sweet.
Or it might be black coffee with a dash of Bailey’s,
You’ve got to live a little.
Raise it high and take a big swig and wish
All the best to Blyth Spartans
