As we approach another home game this Saturday against Swope Park Rangers, it's time to highlight another of our chants to help you learn it before we sing it on Saturday.
After two road wins on the bounce, we still await our first home goal. So, it may come as no surprise that we turn our attention to our front line, most notably our "Native Son" Chandler Hoffman.
When Chandler was announced as Birmingham Legion's first-ever signing, it was something of a (pipe) dream come true. Therefore, we wanted to greet our hometown hero at the event to mark his signing with some chants.
"He's One of Our Own" was a given, but we wanted something a little more unique. With the team coining the "Native Son" nickname, our minds went straight to this classic...
With an eminently chantable guitar riff built-in, that left us the job of reworking the words to the chorus to transform it into an ode to Hoffman's goalscoring abilities.
After a couple of re-workings, we settled on the following, and invite you to join us in singing it loudly and proudly this Saturday in honor of our #9!
Carry on our native son!
There'll be goals when you are done!
Lay defenders down to rest
Oh, Chandler score some goals!
