Sunday League Referees: a photo series by Dave Imms
Every weekend on the Hackney Marshes in London, UK, hundreds of people participate in football matches as part of the Hackney and Leyton Sunday League. This mini-series is about the home-made thrown together referee attire, the individuality and personality to a bloke that’s always seen as the bad guy…maybe it is about that £30 for the 90 minutes of abuse from a load of hungover kids? But I doubt it. Let’s raise a metaphorical glass. In a game full of false idols, these guys are the working class heroes a lot of these kids need.
