Sketching at the match. The keeper between the sticks. It could be at any non league ground. But it’s the FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round in August 2017 with Maine Road v Winsford United. The home side won 3-2 with a last minute long range shot that gave the keeper in this sketch no chance.

The colour work has completed later at home with those pencils that give a water colour effect when wetted. Other facts 5 GBP admission, 1 GBP for a cup of tea and 162 spectators.

Snapped & tweeted this at Manchester Premier Cup Final. It’s been my most re-tweeted & liked photo. FC United fans before the match against Stalybridge Celtic.

Red Star Belgrade 5th February 1958 before the semi final 2nd leg tie against Manchester United. You don’t see this photo very often, in fact I’d never seen until 2017.

Turnstiles are gallery pieces. How many old turnstiles have I seen in museums? Lost count. This is from Boundary Park home of Oldham Athletic. Made by WT Ellison in Salford way back when. Still like that clanking sound. Admission to the green grass drama.

Next season Stockport County will play FC United as their local derby in the renamed National North (though we will still be calling it the Conference).

The football shirt is a County one from 1907 when they tried a season in red white and not blue white. It supposedly belonged to Bert Middlemiss who never appeared for County but was registered to them before becoming a Spurs player.

Nice bit of football exhibits in the Stockport Story Museum.

Fans at NYCFC’s home opener ask the question on everyone’s mind.

Halesowen Town has some nice old architectural features. Old turnstile made by Bailey in Salford and a nice line in iron gates with a paper sign. Lovely old ground and friendly fans who know their football.

Nantwich Town mega store. It’s for those who like to wear football shirts and have a sedentary lifestyle. Merchandise is modern football and it comes down to level 7.

Victorian football boots you’d have to be good to have any ball control wearing these. Leather, wood and nails and they still check for nails for substitute players coming on. Well they used to until recently and they certainly would have back in 1890’s when these would have been worn.

Where are they? In a glass case in Turton Tower in Lancashire.

Football or parking. For some reason I found this interesting. Like the way they’ve re-used an old newspaper advertising board.

Atmospheric night match in Salford. There is fine drizzle coming from the sky but it has not deterred the 433 here. FA Cup replay at Moor Lane and it was Salford City 0-1 Ashton United in the 2nd qualifying round.
