Derby Day

Derby Day

Derby day at Meadow Lane. Following a massive change in form for Notts County, there was a real air of expectation for this sometimes one sided fixture against Mansfield Town! A bit like the olden days, there was a great atmosphere building in the ground even half an hour before kick off. As ever football creates big emotion in people, young and old. I loved trying to catch the range of emotion in the images below. For the record Notts County (despite being bottom versus top) convincingly won the match.

Meadow Lane Black & White

Passion, tension, anticipation, drama, celebration, community, family – I love that all of this is available in abundance on match day (and in the case of Notts County has been since 1862)! This is the continuation of a project photographing match day at Meadow Lane. In taking these images I endeavour to capture what football means to the people that go and watch. And what it means to me – having been hooked since the age of seven! As of this week prints are available to purchase at www.japhotopics.co.uk/Notts-County

A very intimate and compelling gig at Meadow Lane last night – performed in support of Amnesty International and Sofar Sounds’ Give a Home campaign. Following media interviews at his beloved home town club, Jake performed a breathtaking set in front of just 100 people in the Notts County boardroom.
