With eleven days to go until the start of the new Irish League season, clubs are finetuning their sides in preparation.
Linfield are currently in the process of doing this, tonight playing Dunmurry Rec at Ashley Park.
With the relatively close location, I decided to venture down to take in the action.
It was a routine win for Linfield, 8-0, with Jim Ervin of all people scoring a hat-trick, and not one of them was a penalty.
The ground is very friendly to amateur photographers in terms of getting close access to the pitch, although the poor lighting meant that getting photos late on in the game was going to be hard, due to it being an evening game.
