Youth Football Tournament at West Ham FC

May 22, 2014  •  1 Comment

Young people's football tournament on the pitch at West Ham FC, hosted by Active Newham. 

Active Newham works with the local authority in boosting participation in sport and leisure activities.

A sunny afternoon in East London was the perfect backdrop for schoolchildren to participate in a football tournament on the hallowed turf of West Ham United.  A prestigious opportunity for many local kids, there was some excellent skills on show!

I was there to grab pictures of the winning players posing with the trophy and the Mayor of Newham for a magazine, but I got there early so I could shoot some action too.  In this kind of work its good to go above and beyond what is asked, since a client may be pleasantly surprised by anything extra they receive.

A quick team talk with the coach on the sideline ahead of the tournament final

This young lad definitely shone amongst the group with a sublime touch and some great goal scoring too

And he celebrates scoring a second time in the final to win the tournament for his team

He's mobbed by his teammates and coaches on the pitch after the win
 

Before celebrating all together... well, nearly all of them (boy on far right is not so impressed)

The winning team and coaches clutch their awards and celebrate with the Mayor of Newham Sir Robin Wales (centre back)

The young star of the tournament stands proudly with his winner's trophy whilst chatting to Sir Robin Wales
