For the love of playing
As part of Goal Click: London, in partnership with adidas, photographer James Clothier documented grassroots football scenes at Low Hall Sports Ground, Walthamstow.
'Kickabout': Kickabout in the cages at Low Hall Sports Ground, Walthamstow. The players pictured weren't playing for a league, they weren't playing for trophy, they were just playing for the love of playing. Sunday mornings can be a battle between staying in bed, spending your day doing nothing or getting out and doing something. These are the winners of that battle.
'Crossbar': Tape on the goals of the 11 a side pitches at Low Hall Sports Ground. Every Sunday nets are attached to these dormant metal rectangles, turning them into something more. Something that can bring tears of joy, fits of anger, embarrassment and laughter. This tape represents every emotion we attach to football.
'Goalkeeper': The last game of the season between Walthamstow F.C and the Barking Tigers at Low Hall Sports Ground.
