A video doing the rounds on social media shows a Stokie singing a brilliant song about his home city.
The video – shared on Facebook and Twitter – shows the singer in what appears to be a Stoke City T-shirt with a guitar.
As the camera begins to roll the man looks at the camera and says: ‘For all Stokies’ and then starts to sing about his ‘Stoke-on-Trent home’ to the tune of In My Liverpool Home.
The lyrics, rewritten for the Potteries, include the line: ‘We’re brought up on oatcakes, traditional fayre, if you want a town centre, we’ve got five to spare, in my Stoke-on-Trent Home.”
The man, who appears to be performing in his bedroom, sings about the history of The Potteries and mentions Titanic, Captain Smith, Arnold Bennett, Reginald Mitchell and the Spitfire.
There is also mention of various local potteries, including Wedgwood, Royal Doulton, Dudson and Spode, as well as the coal mines.
And, in a line about Vale and Stoke, he sings: ‘Sir Stan was famous he could’ve been king, but he stuck to his football and played on the wing’.
The video lasts just over four minutes.
Now people have taken to Facebook to share the video with many claiming it to be ‘brilliant’.
Mark Pearce said: “Don’t know who the bloke is but makes me proud to be from Stoke. Let’s make this Stokie famous!”
Donna Susan said: “Absolutely brilliant Thank you so much – proud to be a Stokie’ and Terry Jay agreed saying: “Brilliant the history of Stoke all in one song. Makes you proud of Stoke’s past.”
