From the publisher:
This is a love letter to Sunday League Football. The photographs and quotes, captured on Hackney Marshes, reveal the comradery, passion and broken bones of those that brave hangovers to play the beautiful (and very muddy) game.
Chris Baker is a documentary and portrait photographer from London with a long history in the amateur game. After one too many injuries, Baker decided to get on the safe side of the sidelines and begin a two-year documentation of football on the Hackney Marshes. Prior to his obsession with photography, he worked for an independent record label.
