A SEASON IN PICTURES WITH NOTTS COUNTY FC
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.
Here are a selection of images taken through the 2016/17 season, all shot on Fujifilm X Series cameras and lenses
