Was at Mourneview Park today for Linfield’s opening match of the 2011-2012 season, as Linfield began a title defence for the 50th time.

Lurgan was dark, grey and miserable, nothing new there, as it rained from the first whistle until midway through the second-half.

For some reason, Linfield attacked the Crescent End in the second-half, rather than in the first-half, as is usual.

When Linfield were attacking the other end, i’d hoped to stand behind the goal and get some photos as it is a good spot, but there wasn’t a hope in hell I was going to stand in a monsoon to get photos.

It wasn’t the best of phototaking conditions, but I did manage to get some not so bad ones.

Of the game itself, Linfield won 2-1, and deservedly so. Lovers of last ditch throwing your body in the way of shots defending will have loved Albert Watson and David Armstrong today.

Anyway, enjoy these photos.
