18th Oct – 18th Nov

Note to self: don’t get behind on your blog posts. I’ve left it exactly a month since my last set of football pictures were uploaded to this glorious public gallery. Not out of laziness, nor out of a lack of desire to do so…I’ve simply not had the time, end of story. Since then, we’ve had smoke, acrobatics, scooters, goats, poppies, penalties and programmes. I’ve no doubt my legion of loyal subscribers (ahem) will be anxious to see the produce of my last four weeks’ work, so without further delay…
