New song to welcome Waltham Forest FC back to Wadham Lodge
A new song has been penned to celebrate Waltham Forest FC’s return home.
The team played their first game back at the Wadham Lodge ground in Kitchener Road on August 10 after five years in exile in Ilford.
Despite a heavy defeat, losing 5-0 to VCD Athletic, fan Graham Larkbey, 61, of Carr Road, Walthamstow, has written a new football chant to celebrate their homecoming called ‘Back to the Lodge’.
Mr Larkbey said: “I thought the club ought to have a song to celebrate returning to the Lodge, so I decided to write one!"
The chorus optimistically goes: “We’re coming home again, the Forest are on their way, back to the Lodge, It’s the dawning of a brand new day.”
