Off the back of his very excellent Sunday Football photography book, Chris Baker has now made a short film about the same subject. He has gone back to Hackney Marshes, this time armed with a Super 8 camera.
Baker captures the frustrations and fantasy of Sunday League managers in two nostalgic minutes.
The perpetual annoyance that the ball spends too much time in the air and the players' blatant disregard (read: lack of ability) to keep the play along the ground will be winding up amateur team captains and managers all over the world.
Then there's the manager who has a magnetic tactics whiteboard for use on a Sunday league pitch. It's one of the most heartwarming and embarrassing things I've ever seen. I bet they got hammered by a team who are happy to intimidate their way to victory when their two semi-pros from the Saturday leagues don't show up.
