The Porthleven wall of l-r; Kevin Lawrence, Steve Brewer, Mark Holland and Mike Davies take a free kick full on during a recent league game against local rivals Penryn. Some wonderful expressions from the players and this was used large on the back page of our local paper last week - and I got some stick from the lads when I photographed them again on Bank Holiday Monday Smile

Thanks for looking, comments welcome as ever !!

Nice one. I'm not surprised the local paper used it. Makes a great alternative to usual sports photography by adding a 'more human' element.

I'm confused, is it the incoming football that is causing them to grimace or the fact that they are gripping too tight Smile

Has to be worth a vote just for those expressions!
