Market Rasen and Louth RFC junior Lloyd Buck got lyrical to help win a World Cup party at his club on Saturday.

Lloyd won second prize in the Ultimate Fan Cam competition run by Canterbury Sportswear after his father Cliff sent a video of his son reciting his World Cup poem.

The under 13s player’s words earned £1,500 for the club towards food and drink, shirts and bunting to decorate the Willingham Road clubhouse. The prize also included a short video being made of the evening’s events as a packed clubhouse watched the crunch England v Australia match.

Sadly for England fan Lloyd, the 33–13 defeat saw the home nation knocked out of the competition, but a terrific evening was enjoyed.

Lloyd’s poem ‘Committed to the Game’

Its England, its 2015

We welcome you and your teams

Wear your shirt with pride cos

Captains your job is to guide

Your team to the cup of their dreams.

We love this our egg shaped ball

With it we can run pass, ruck, or maul

Show big respect

with the players you connect,

As good tackles will make them fall

Show us some really good tries

You really may need to fly

So break down the defence

But cause no offence

As rugby players are really good guys

Watch the forwards hold the ball tight

Playing with all of their might

They are in it

To win it

And will put up a very good fight

GAME ON!
