THERESA SHARES HER MATCHDAY EXPERIENCE IN RHYME

6 April 2016

A Day At The Football - by Theresa Gazard

This week, we're taking part in the Level Playing Field's Weeks of Action campaign, which promotes access and inclusion for all supporters.

Earlier in the season we asked disabled supporters to contact the club with their thoughts, experiences and suggestion as to their matchday at Luton Town, and we were delighted when lifelong Hatter Theresa Gazard sent us her poem entitled 'A Day at the Football'. It's great to hear such positive feedback - we strive to provide as positive and experience as possible for our disabled supporters. 

A Day At The Football - by Theresa Gazard

Being a disabled football supporter is tough
Here at Luton the staff do more than enough 
A few years ago I could walk to the ground 
Today a parking space must be found  
Most weeks without a doubt 
The club will try and sort this out 
Once the turnstiles I could spin
Now they are bars I can't get in
I have to go in a special gate
It's no problem the stewards are great 
My fellow fans play their part too
Always giving me room to get through 
Nobody ever says hurry up move on
When they have to wait as I shuffle along
Our barmy army who appear hard and bold 
They still have respect for the disabled and old 
Someone needs to take me to the Kenny
It's wonderful it does not cost them a penny
I couldn't go to matches if these things. we're not true
The club and fans of Luton Town I salute you
