Friday night saw me shooting Guildford City FC versus Carshalton Athletic, a team a few steps higher in the footballing pyramid, a creditable performance by the underdogs in a goal-fest eventually losing 4-3. Saturday was going to be an busy one, I need to replace the roof-lining in the Golf, but the weather put paid to that. Sunday I was shooting the very First football match for the Guildford City Women’s team.
An idea only three months ago & now a football team playing it’s first game, albeit in a field full of clover, and three inch grass. With 11 players in the squad who had never taken part in a formal football match before, they were given a bit of a lesson by the Badshot Lea Women’s team. However there was much to be positive about and plenty of work to do, but games will be a little easier on short grass or 3G. I am looking forward to shooting them again next weekend, in what will be the teams first match on a proper football pitch, with fans (Covid permitting).
Tomorrow night will see me shooting Guildford City’s senior team against AFC Wimbledon, which I am sure will be an interesting spectacle for both sets of fans. See you there at the Horsham FC stadium from 1830hrs. Assuming I get back from Daventry in good time. COYG!
