Peter Osgood is a Chelsea legend who came through the junior ranks of the club’s academy to make his debut as 17-yo in the League Cup against Workington AFC on 16 December 1964. As a testament of things to come, the future ‘King of Stamford Bridge’ scored both goals of the tie. The buzz surrounding the tall, skilful teenager’s goalscoring for the club’s reserves – 30 goals in 20 games going into that month – was already immense, and he soon became a regular first-team player.
The wizard of Os won two trophies with Chelsea. First was the FA cup victory in 1969-70 season against none other than Leeds. The second was now defunct European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1970-71 season against Real Madrid. Osgood scored in both the finals.
The chant is sung to the tune of ‘The First Noel’.
Out from The Shed came a rising young star,
scoring goals past Pat Jennings from near and from far,
When Cheslea won as we all knew they would,
The star of that great team was Peter Osgood,
Born is the king of Stamford Bridge!
