PHOTO DIARY OF A FOOTBALL SEASON – APRIL/MAY

Due to an early Irish Cup exit, my first match in April didn’t come until the 12th of the month, as Linfield headed to Seaview for a must-win game, and ground out a 3-2 win.

Got some nice photos, as per usual at Seaview due to the closeness of the pitch, helped by a sunny day as well.

The following weekend, I was at Windsor Park to see Linfield’s title hopes take a critical blow with a draw against Portadown.

Three days later, I was there to see Linfield’s title hopes take a fatal blow against Glentoran.

That game, was the last Linfield game where the South Stand, as we know it will be used. Sat there in the 2nd half as Linfield were attacking the Railway End, I managed to get some final shots of the stand for posterity.

As the seasons ends, so does eras. The following Saturday, it was Lurgan for me to see Linfield’s last match with David Jeffrey as manager.

It was typical end of season stuff, with Linfield running out easy 5-2 winners.

The following weekend, came my final match of the season, the Irish Cup Final. Unfortunately, Linfield weren’t involved, but I got a ticket in Lurgan the week before for the Glenavon end.

Glenavon won the game 2-1, to lift the cup for the first time since 1997. A week short of 10 months since my first game, my 2013-2014 season was over.
