Field of Dreams

By Robin Tulley

We came, we saw, we sat in awe
Our patience now rewarded
A fitting end to bitter times
That so long have been recorded
We lost our spiritual home
The Goldstone sold off beneath our feet
And ground shared at Gillingham
But never admitted defeat
Then came the Withdean years
A new stadium was the dream
But every obstacle was put up
To thwart this enterprising scheme
But we kept the faith the team responded
Success on the pitch was to follow
Our saviour appeared and put down his marker
Tony Bloom backed the plans of tomorrow
And now like a beacon the new stadium is here
Standing proudly on the edge of the City
It’s the beginning of a new era
And the long suffering fans can at last  cheer
Who knows what’s to come  in the future
The Premiership is  the dream
With Gus Poyet at the helm
Its now up to our aspiring team
With sweeping roofs and tiered stands
The ‘Amex Stadium’ is a dream come true
History is now in the making
As the seagulls soar in their white and blue
