From the publisher:
FAIR GAME is photographic book about grassroots football, and people. Tom Connolly’s journey into non-league unearthed something bigger than sport. The result is a collection of stunning photographs recording lives lived on the perimeter of the pitch.
It’s a book that feels particularly relevant in the aftermath of the failed Super League, and you don't have to be a fan to love this record of a community through a season of passion, loss, birth, death, tears and laughter.
The award-winning photographer, Michael Donald, whose 2018 book GOAL! was shortlisted for Sports Book of the Year, says: “This book is very timely. The world is moving, through choice and circumstance, away from big corporate to the ‘local’ and this is perfect. Going local does not mean your world is shrinking. It’s the opposite. And this book is testament to that.”
Tom Connolly used to play non-league football and make films, Now he takes photographs and windsurfs.
