This is a love letter to Sunday League Football. Published by Hoxton Mini Press, the book captures the beloved game at amateur level as played each week on Hackney Marshes. Common Ground co-founder Chris Baker spent two-and-a-half years documenting British Sunday League Football at its best, every week of the season come rain or shine. The photographs and quotes reveal a subculture where players bond over hangovers, lighting cigarettes at half-time and getting lost in the emotion of the game.
“A visual ode to a beautiful game. Documenting the drama of Hackney's football pitches uncovers a world of camaraderie and confrontation.”
Sunday Football is available from Hoxton Press as a fully cloth-covered Collector’s Edition, presented in a bespoke cloth-covered clamshell box complete with signed and numbered limited edition print.
