Ballad Bonanza!

Should the Glory players need a little literary inspiration during their hectic Christmas schedule, they need look no further than the selection of uplifting ballads written by students at Dianella Secondary College.

As part of a Year 9 English project, the youngsters were asked to be as creative as possible in coming up with something that would celebrate everything about Glory and urge the team on to, well, Glory.

And it was a challenge they clearly relished.

Thanks to the efforts of English teacher Karalee Blake and well-known Glory member Matt 'Chopper' Stacey, we can now share three examples of this ballad bonanza with everyone.

Enjoy!

Lyndon Noble went for some strong imagery...

"Perth Glory is our name,

and soccer is our game,

our team wears purple,

we'll jump over any hurdle.

We are Perth Glory,

and this is our story.

When we play we will win,

and we'll put you in the bin,

you should be scared of us,

we will hit you like a bus.

We are Perth Glory,

and this is our story.

We love to play soccer,

it is a great honour,

every game will be a victory,

and they will go down in history.

We are Perth Glory,

and this is our story.

We will be at the top,

and we will put you to a stop,

we'll always be victorious,

that's why we are glorious.

We are Perth Glory,

and this is our story."

Sara Mani gave a nod to history and then pulled no punches...

"Founded in 1995, covered in purple and white.

Come watch us fight.

This is going to be our victory.

We will make history.

This game will put you to shame.

We will ride to fame.

We will stride with pride.

Taking our fan's for the ride.

Keeping our heads held high.

So why don't you go on by.

Let's tell you a story.

You can't compare to Glory.

This game will put you to shame.

We will ride to fame.

We will stride with pride.

Taking our fan's for the ride.

Winning is our aim.

Defeat will bring you shame.

We will fight to the end."

And Faizullah worked in some nature references...

"We are Perth Glory,

making a great story.

We wear purple,

breezing through any hurdle.

Soccer is our game.

Perth Glory is our name.

Victory is our aim.

Perth is our flame.

We play side by side,

keeping our head up with pride.

We aim for victory,

here we make history.

Soccer is our game.

Perth Glory is our name.

Victory is our aim .

Perth is our flame.

We make Perth proud,

they shout out loud.

Perth Glory will win,

power comes from within.

Soccer is our game.

Perth Glory is our name.

Victory is our aim .

Perth is our flame.

Perth Glory Soccer Club,

ready to step up.

Victory we will attain,

we attack like a hurricane.

Soccer is our game.

Perth Glory is our name.

Victory is our aim .

Perth is our flame."
