Shot of the Season: Dan Newberry

We’re asking our fabulous photographers to send in their favourite image of the Pitching In Isthmian season and explain why it’s important to them. Dan recalls a wintry evening photographing the Kingfishers

When was the image taken (match, event, etc)?

This photo was taken during the match between Southall FC V Thatcham Town FC on the evening of 18th Oct, it was a particularly wet,windy and cold night. It is of centre back Josh Blackwood heading to clear the ball against the Southall forward.

Why is it important to you?

The photo is particularly striking in black and white as it captured the wintery conditions against the backdrop of the bright floodlights.

Where can we find the rest of your work?

On my website- here.

Thanks Dan- now who's next? Send you image- and your answers to the questions- to Ian at and you'll see it here soon.
