A sunny evening warm-up....

10th May 2018

The tradition is that near the end of the winter's football season the Channel Islands have one last highlight in the form of the Muratti.

The 2018 match was due to be played in Jersey this year between the old rivals.... Guernsey v Jersey.

As part of the Guernsey squads preparation a warm-up match was arranged against Upton Park. I went along to photograph the game for the Guernsey Press and was able to enjoy a beautiful spring-time evening. This was a far cry away from some of the games I'd covered during the winter when the wind and driving rain under flood-lights made it quite a miserable place to be.

Maybe this evening game was the reward and pay-back for that discomfort? Who knows how these things work!
