Happy Burns Night from everyone at Stenhousemuir FC


Fair and fu’ is your honest, fitba’ face,

Great chieftain o’ the spherical race!

Above them a’ ye tak yir place,

Wi’ twa legs, twa feet, and fitba’ grace,

Then let us pray that come it may,

As come it will for a’ that,

That sense and worth, o’er a’ the earth,

Shall be the fitba’ gift, an’ a’ that,

That fan to fan, the world o’er,

Shall brithers be for a’ that


With thanks to the author Mike McInnes, for supplying us this fitba’ Burns poem in advance of his new book Homo Passiens: Man the Footballer which is a fact/fiction spoof on the shaping of human evolution (past, present and future) by the playing of football.
