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.

Kick off

Andrew Ashcroft, AKA 'Ash', but also known as one of 'The Andes' because of his great height and centre back paring with another Andrew; Andy Barlow

Ash played another blinder, showing off some cheeky skills to breeze past a couple of opponents in the first half.
