Tussle by phil_howcroft

Tussle

I went to watch local non league Arnold Town play Dunkirk in a pre season friendly match,

Dunkirk in Nottingham as opposed to the French port of the same name.

In fact I used to live in Dunkirk (the Nottingham version)

A typical football tussle with the Dunkirk defender (yellow jersey) trying to fend off the Arnold Town attacker

Full Time score 3-2 to Dunkirk, Attendance , about 40 , temperature , pretty chilly for a July summer evening, lots of cloud and quite dark, so shot with a high ISO

Posr processed in Rawtherapee and then a little cloning in GIMP to remove some distracting yellow flowers in the bushes
They use this fending off gesture a lot nowdays in all ball games! It seems to work.

No long before the season begins again, I hoping for a good season for Arsene Wenger as the we are now throw the financial restraints the new stadium imposed and he can leave when he is ready to with his reputation in tact.
