A few images from Rosemary Lane yesterday where the Reserves entertained local rivals Long Melford Reserves.

It was a keenly contested encounter on what was a very bright (in the first half) but cold and breezy afternoon. The first half saw very few chances and several, shall we say 'lively' challenges. They went in goal less at half time which on reflection was a fair scoreline.

The second half saw Halstead slowly get a foothold on the game and their possession and pressure paid off with 3 goals in the final 15-20 minutes.

On a photography level I'm still honing my skills and trying to find a style that suits me. Again focussing seems to be the issue and quite a few images weren't quite sharp enough, which was a great shame. (I am told this is main problem faced by sports photographers)

On the plus side, I enjoy doing it and with some practice I'm sure I'll improve my technique.
