The Mighty D&C Athletic
Grassroots plays 4G!
It's a warm sunny morning 9am Saturday 19th June and D&C Athletic football club are about to kick off against St Marys FC in a friendly football match.
Despite being a grassroots Sunday league team they got to play on Macclesfield Town FC's home ground in Cheshire which boasts a perfect 4G surface... ideal for D&C's tiki-taka playing style! Such a historic event had to be caught on camera.
If you need an event photographer for your own sporting occasion give me a call today!
Lots of fight from the D&C team, but sadly no win. Much fun had by all though and captured in photos, check out my sports event photography below.
