Poetic Writing of ROBBIE KENNEDY BENNETT © www.rkbpoetry.co.uk Born in Wolverhampton of English and Scottish parentage. He grew up on the Rough Hills Estate area of the town and his Scottish ancestral roots are in the Kingdom of Fife and Dundee. The author is now residing in Codsall, Staffordshire. Drawings, pictures and writing are copyright of the author Robbie Kennedy Bennett. THE GLENBUCK CHERRYPICKER FROM AYRSHIRE. A story poem about one of Glenbucks youngsters who became a legend. This Ayrshire mining village produced about 50 professional footballers. It is debatable if he ever played for the Cherrypickers first team as an adult because they disbanded. His father, who was a good middle distance runner in his time, was involved in the club. This youngster would have trained with the team, and visulised his dream. Sadly on my visit to Glenbuck in 2004 to see a stone of his achievements, the village was long gone.

THE GLENBUCK CHERRYPICKER FROM AYRSHIRE ©
By Robbie Kennedy Bennett 2001

In the breeze fluttered the old banners,
His court bestowed their good manners.
A Cherrypickers widow they did passionately applaud,
For the Ayrshire Scot they idolised and adored...


For Sparky
From the beat of his heart to the strength of his jaw,
As true as The Mersey his words were the law.
Now picture his face then look in his eyes,
He bred the belief to win the great prize.

November 30th 2009 nearing the 50th Anniversary of Bill Shankly’s arrival at Anfield I was fortunate to be there and to take this picture of the statue of the Ayrshire Scot.
