A Blue, Toffee-nosed and all

Couldn't wait to see you at Anfield kicking the ball.

But it wasn't to be

Because you signed for your heroes

It was easy to see why you would go to the other side of

Stanley Park?

I was so happy for you Mark

Your Stevie Gerrard boyhood dream had come true

Mark Ward was now an official blue

I watched your career blossom from the word go

I watched you with passion my Cousin,

I was into Newspaper cut-outs, filled a Book dedicated to you

It was so great to watch the fans call out to you

Wardy, Wardy they shouted from the stands

Thousands cheered all waving their hands

Northwich, Oldham, then on to West Ham

Man City, Everton then back to Birmingham

Player Coach at Leigh RMI

MATE YOU HAD THE WORLD AT YOUR FEET

Why did your dreams have to die?

So here is to your future

It all starts right here

This is the beginning of a new career.
