The poem in full is as follows:
“The famous Red Army roar,
“Just 17 men, but with you we’re more,
“An army, united in our belief,
“A team, a dream, a passion which is unique,
“We’re not like other clubs,
“We do things our way,
“Standing tall, shoulder to shoulder,
“Through the thick and the thin,
“We never give in,
“Brothers and sisters in arms,
“Marching forward with passion for our tribe,
“We don’t believe what we read,
“Hull Kingston Rovers are all that we need,
“We fight to the end,
“And never give up,
“In games, in love and the passion for our club,
“It’s time to rise again, and hear that famous red army roar,
“In 2019 we go together once more.”
