Sunday League

With the COVID-19 lockdown easing in early September 2020 and numbers of infection rates being less than they had been there seemed to be a renewed sense of hope, celebration and life within the UK and our communities. Life seemed to have been restarted with shops, restaurants and other venues opening up again. Another small but visible example of this rejuvenation was the colour, sounds and excitement provided by the Sunday Football leagues which restarted at this time.

I felt I had taken these occasions at one time (as with much of life) for granted. Their prior ‘insignificance’ took on a new power and meaning following the events of the passing weeks and months and needed to be recorded. Within these matches are the greatest of moments, with a meaning much larger than ever before. Everybody had a chance to be the hero, to connect with their team mates, and fight for a common goal! 

In these works are dog walkers, vapers, supporters, ramblers and many other associated or not with the teams themselves. They are all very much part of the communities that these paintings depict.
