Avraham (Avi) Cohen

Belter on last day of the season
Reds champions by end of the day
Scored for and against the Villa
Motty uttered ‘Oh I say!'

‘Me and you, same!’
King Kenny looked moodish
‘What do you mean by that?’
Avi said, ‘Both learn English!’

'Orthodox Jews don't play Saturdays'
Chronicle to Mister Paisley
Gaffer with a wry smile
‘I’ve half a dozen like that already!’

'Beckenbauer of the Middle East'
Came on for Ray Kennedy
Memories measured and happy
Farewell and goodbye Avi

Number 7
