The Best Football Photographs of The Weekend

A small selection of the photos I have really enjoyed seeing again from Colchester versus Swindon in League 1000005900000100800000949000009090000089200000886

Swindon Supporters At Colchester


Views From The Press Box at Colchester Football Club


A Day out at Colchester Football Club. A Lesson for many clubs who want to learn how to treat their fans

Colchester have to be one of the most friendly clubs in the lower leagues. their season is not going well. Currently sitting bottom of league 1 and seemingly destined to be visiting league 2 grounds next season. But despite this the fans were cheerful, friendly and carrried on supporting their team until the 90th minute even when losing at home 4-1 to Swindon.

These photos give some flavour to a thoroughly enjoyable day. You see friendly media folks busy at work, friendly stewards smiling,  the referee and officials having a good chat with some younger fans pre-game. Raises plenty of questions for me, why exactly can this not happen at any game?

The photos of the Press box remove the illusion that reporters and commentators sit in some luxury palace, far from it. The wind was howling even when the fans were not. The Swindon fans were here to have a good time and were nosiy from the start, a decent number in a smallish crowd.
