Funky five-line football rap challenge

Football and raps don’t usually go together, but we can’t see why they shouldn’t!

We want to hear your 5-line raps about playing, watching or generally loving football. Roy of the Rover's author Tom Palmer has more details about the competition in the video below, as well as some top tips to get you thinking about the structure of your rap.

The best raps will be in with the chance of winning some incredible prizes including:

  • Six football sessions (choosing between summer holiday or evening slots) with Robbie Hawkes, plus a football and a copy of a Roy of the Rovers title
  • Six football sessions with Robbie Hawkes at an evening class, plus a Roy of the Rovers book
  • A £20 voucher to spend at Robbie Hawkes’ Hawkes Health, Fitness and Coaching plus a Roy of the Rovers book
  • Further copies of the Roy of the Rovers books
  • Footballs

The competition is run in partnership with local football coach Robbie Hawkes who, over the past few months has gifted over 500 copies of Roy of the Rovers books to the children he coaches at Hawkes Health, Fitness and Coaching.

Once your raps have been written, send them to You can enter as many times as you want, so do feel free to grab some extra paper instead of using the worksheet, or type them in an email.

Deadline: Friday 21 May at Midday.
