A new year, but same old football related photo adventures.
Thankfully, a home game to see in the new year (didn’t really fancy the 212 on New Year’s Day) against Institute, and a 3-0 win for Linfield.
My first Saturday game of the year saw me visit a new ground for the first time. The less said about Linfield’s trip to QUB, the better.
Things got a bit better on the pitch, the weather less so, as I headed to Solitude nine days later in the middle of Storm Brendan to see Linfield go top of the League with a 2-1 win against Cliftonville.
Linfield’s inconsistent form continued with a 0-0 draw at home to Dungannon Swifts the following Saturday.
The following midweek saw my first football trip of the year, to Old Trafford to see United lose to Burnley.
While I was there, I was able to take in another match, Salford City v Accrington Stanley in the EFL Trophy, which meant I was able to visit another new ground for the first time, the second of the month.
The following Saturday, I headed to Windsor Park to see Linfield hammer Glenavon 8-1.
That was then followed by a trip to Larne the following midweek, my first visit to Inver Park since 2005, to see Linfield lose 3-1.
