30 years of ‘our football’

Photographer Stuart Roy Clarke portrays nothing less than the national spirit, glimpsed through the lens of Britain’s national game. For 30 years he has been making a portrait of who we are in relation to the game of all games, our Football. Clubs big and small sit shoulder to shoulder. Stadiums rise up and others are more humble. Clarke is fascinated in them all. And in us: the people who make the football experience what it is.

Football v rugby: who wins?

There is plenty of antipathy between the two sports, but also plenty of common ground. And there is much that one can learn from the other.
