So, the 2016-2017 season is over for me. I hope you’ve enjoyed my photographic look back at the season just gone.
I’ve selected some of my favourites, so feel free to vote for the one you like the best.
Taken back in June 2016 at Northern Ireland v Poland, I like the composition, how everyone is fixated on the action at the other end of the pitch, and the colour co-ordination of both sets of fans.
Taken at a pre-season game between Linfield and Dundela, it captures the joys of going to football matches in pre-season, sunshine and relaxation ahead of the hard slog ahead.
I like the framing of this, as the crowd is in position, awaiting kick-off in a big match.
Linfield fans celebrating Jimmy Callacher’s winner against Glentoran in October. I just like this for some reason other than the obvious.
There’s just something about the architecture of old football grounds that does it for me. This is out of use turnstiles at Palmerston Park, home of Queen of the South.
Linfield fans appeal in unison, all making the same hand gestures, for a goal to be allowed. The goal was disallowed for a foul.
Taken at the Steel and Sons Cup Final. Some people like getting dressed up for Christmas.
I like the composition of this, from Ross Gaynor’s posture, to substitutes chatting to each other while the game goes on.
I like the composition of this, all eyes fixated on the penalty area and the incoming corner.
I like the composition of this shot, it looks like a Spot The Ball image, except that the ball is in the shot, with two players getting ready for an aerial tussle.
I love the framing and seeing players in the background running to join the celebrations.
Celebrations after Andrew Waterworth’s second goal against Cliftonville, capturing the joy of the event and the achievement just about to happen.
