“The Auskicker” by Stephanie Boase

The Auskicker    (for Linclon)


Coloured bands around your wrist

Show you where to run.

Jerseys, boots and footy socks

Show the team you’re one.


Handball to your team mate,

Kick it if you can.

Try to get it through the gap

To the forward man.



He takes a solid mark,

With the goal posts near!

Clap and cheer and pat his back

As the ball sails clear!


A goal, a goal!

A job well done!

The team all gather round

To celebrate his first goal kicked

And his joy in footy found!
