It’s been a while since I’ve done any sports work so I decided to keep my hand in by heading down to the Hartham Common to shoot a football match between local club Mangrove FC and Bully’s Crusaders
Most of my work in sports has been for local news and social media but bookings have declined since the onset of the pandemic and resulting measures. As well as football I’ve also covered hockey, cricket, rugby, lacrosse and athletics, as well as indoor sports such as basketball.
Despite not being a sports fan myself I do enjoy covering the action on a sports pitch (or court!) and it was great to be back out with a long lens.
Hopefully there’ll be more opportunities in the near future to cover local sports events and fixtures.
