Cup Final Day ..

The morning of the FA Cup Final, and I remember how exciting it used to be as a kid, playing footie in the street as we built up to the three o’clock kick-off. Later, working for the Manchester Evening News, I’d usually be deployed to local bus-stations to shoot Man U fans departing to Wembley. I’ll never forget the excitement though when, just a few days into my career as a press photographer in 1978, I had to photograph the team’s Captain, Martin Buchan. Ok, so he was only opening a paint and wallpaper shop in Altrincham but, for me at 18, this was a sure sign I’d hit the big time!!..

Come on you reds ..
