Whitgift School‘s U11 7-a-side football team made it through to the National Finals at St. George’s Park in Burton-upon-Trent for the second year running this week. And for the second year running, I was asked to photograph the action, this time to document their attempts to retain the trophy they came away with twelve months earlier.
Needless to say, they did it, arguably with an even more convincing performance than in 2015.
The boys were, once again, a joy to photograph; the manner in which they conducted themselves was exemplary, and on the pitch they demonstrated a sporting intelligence and an understanding of the game far beyond their years – their victory was thoroughly deserved.
Here’s to next year’s hat-trick!
