  • A thought from long ago

    Now how can a man do better
    For the honour of his club
    On the roadways of this country
    Than scorch from pub to pub?

    This is my version of a couplet written in the visitors' book of the John O' Groats Hotel by W.H. Hillyer after he had helped Lawrence Fletcher (Anfield BC) on his End to End trike record in 1885.

    The original was:

    For how can a man do better
    Than scorch from pub to pub
    On the roadways of his country
    For the honour of his club?

    I've turned it round because to my mind the punch line is '.........from pub to pub', and so it must come at the end.
