Its been a while and I’ve been busy with all sorts of things. The Dartford Football club has kept me busy.
A shot from behind the goal, a Dartford FC score.
I’ve noticed that in a lot of televised football games that the cameras set up behind the goal are so close that on a number of occasions they have been hit by the ball and sent flying backwards, no doubt causing damage. I hope I manage to avoid that, so far its worked just fine.
After the FA cup match against Harrow Borough I was packing my stuff away when some of the local supporters asked for pictures. Above is one of a typical club supporter, they are always there, mostly loudly rooting for the club, passionate about their local team. Below is one of some of the younger supporters. May be players of the future?
I’ve also been reviving my interest in Motocross at Canada Heights.
Local driver Jack Etheridge and passenger made 3rd place in the timed practice. Unfortunately they didn’t capitalise on this in the races and finished third in the standings with one more session in the season. At that event on 9 October, Stuart Brown / Josh Chamberlain took the overall win from David and Joe Millard with Scott Wilkinson / Dan Chamberlain third.
In the final championship positions Brown won from Millard with Wilkinson / Chamberlain third, equal on points with Etheridge / Humphrey but take the higher position by virtue of their greater number of race wins. So the local boy finished fourth, lets hope for even better next season.
The sidecar-cross events are always entertaining, and the event on 2 October, the British Sidecar-cross Championship event was hotly contested. Unfortunately I could only stay for the morning, I would have liked to been there for the second race.
And since then I’ve had surgery on my left hand which has taken me away from Photography for a few weeks. I’m getting withdrawal symptoms, I am concentrating on getting full use of my hand so I can get back to what I love doing.
