My Return To Women’s Football

Today I made my return to photographing Women’s football matches after being offered the role by Glasgow City.

Following a six month break, I returned to work with FC Kilmarnock Ladies, where my responsibilities included photographer, match reporter, web and social media administrator along with being an active committee member.

However after 18 months or so with Killie, I felt that I had taken the role as far as I could and decided to step down and move away from football for a while.

The opportunity to work with City was unexpected and following next to no negotiation at all, I returned to the land of grass and the round ball, capturing images from Bishopton v Glasgow City Development. The latter ran out handsome winners with a 7-0 scoreline but nevertheless, the home side displayed plenty of courage and determination during the match.

And to round the day off – for once I was dry despite being chilled by a strong gusty wind blowing around Erskine.
