A "pinch myself" moment when I am invited by Northampton Town FC to be a second shooter to club photographer Peter Norton at the match between Northampton and Bradford City.  This is anticipation of celebration should Northampton Win as they will gain promotion to football league 1.  However Northampton loose the match 2-1 and the promotion celebrations are deferred on week until they win at Tranmere Rovers in the final game of the season.  In this frame I capture the goal scored by Max Dyche (Son of Sean Dyche) with a diving header.  This is Max's first professional first team goal.  The instructions issued by NTFC to me was to shoot a reverse angle to Pete Norton, which in this case paid off as  Pete was blocked by the Bradford player (on his knees).
