They say you should support your football club through thick and thin, however the truth is that over the past few years at Meadow Lane it’s been more a case of thin and thinner! My first game watching the Pies was in 1970 and, I’m proud to say, they have been my team ever since. Like many I still recall the halcyon days of top flight football and promotion play-off victories at Wembley (ok we won’t mention Bradford City!) and yearn for those times to return. So, perhaps with more hope than expectation, I was delighted when Notts agreed to my request to document the season through a photographic project. My plan was to record more about the club and its supporters rather than football action shots and I was full of anticipation thinking that this was going to be the season when our fortunes changed. Well they certainly did that, but not quite in the way I and thousands of others had hoped.
