They call us Hornets, Hornets, thats what we are,
They come to watch us from near and far.
Hornets..Hornets..shout it aloud
HORNETS, HORNETS, we are so proud.
That was the chorus to a very old song that the team produced many many moons ago.
Visiting supporters and when we travel away call us Rochdale, but to us locals Rochdale or the Dale is the football team.
Rochdale Hornets to all us locals is quite simply HORNETS!!
So could some-one please remind the author of the report of our game against the Bulls, that was published in this weeks League Express, we really are called HORNETS not Rochdale.
I'm pretty sure that the reporter of this game is a local lad that ought to know better.
What did the T-shirt say, HORNETS since...........?
