After last Saturday it seems very appropriate to post this picture. Sports photography is a very disciplined area, one that I have not a great deal of experience in, it must be said. However during the 1983-84 promotion season from the old 4th Division I used to attend various matches to photograph the likes of Billy Whitehurst and Les Mutrie of Hull City AFC. Billy Whitehurst was a battering ram of a centre forward (far right). With his strike partner Les Mutrie (third from left) who was more agile with a turn of pace.
I used to use a Canon 70-210mm telephoto lens fitted with a x 2 converter and a Hanimex 500mm Mirror lens. Apart from taking photographs at 'The Tiger's' spiritual home of Boothferry Park, I travelled to such places as Chester, Brentford, Penrith (FA Cup) and Rochdale to name but a few away grounds. UTT - Up the Tiger's.

Photographs for use in the official Hull City Match Day Programme, circa 1983-84.
