A return visit to Hampden for another crack at the William Hill Scottish Cup final is music to the ears of Falkirk fans.

And that’s why musician Peter Duncan has named the club’s official cup final song ‘Here We Go Again’.

This one I’ve written myself with original words and music after I sat down and watched the semi-final again

Musician Peter, of the band Young Once, wrote the song the day after the semi-final triumph, and laid down the track last Friday at Homegrown Productions in Torwood.

All proceeds from the song will go to the club’s official charity, StrathCarron Hospice.

“It’s the second time I’ve been involved with the club song,” Peter told The Falkirk Herald.

He added: “The first was 1997’s ‘We Are The Team’ which was based on an old Scottish song. We had the team and Alex Totten singing on it too.

“This one I’ve written myself with original words and music after I sat down and watched the semi-final again.”

With that match fresh in the memory, two players are name-checked on the single which will be available on iTunes with a limited number of CDs also being produced.

Peter added: “It’s not a pop song, though we might well have a few versions of it – remix it you’d maybe say.

“I wanted to put everyone’s name in it but you’ve got to remember that some of these words have to rhyme! It gets the effect from the goalkeeper through to the forwards and everyone should recognise that they are part within that.

“The goalkeeper – the number one – and Craig Sibbald get a name check because simply you could never forget their input into the semi-final.”

‘Here we go again’ will be on many playlist en route to Hampden including Peter’s.

“It’ll be on in the cars – we have 15 going as a group and it’ll be a fantastic day. For the first time we’ll have grandchildren in tow too.”
