Monday, 25 January 2010 » The Marshes and a spot of Usage »


I enjoy my regular Sunday morning assignment to cover football on Hackney Marshes. However, things are set to change for the 2010/11 season and beyond.

At the moment there are eleven well-maintained and regularly used football pitches on the East Marsh of Hackney Marshes. In May this year work will commence in earnest to convert the land into a car park for the 2012 Olympics. The famous Hackney & Leyton Sunday League will be affected as their matches will be moved to the nearby South Marsh for the next couple of years. The plan is to restore the East Marsh to footballing use after the games, but officials of the League are still not 100% convinced this will happen...



Workers stand atop a large pile of earth on the East Marsh of Hackney Marshes. Works will soon begin in earnest to convert the playing fields to a car park for the 2012 Olympics.

For the time being, action is still taking place on the East Marsh. After several unplanned weeks off due to the bad winter weather, a full programme of matches took place yesterday. Here's a spot of action by way of proof...

On Saturday, Dave Simpson made the long trip to Shropshire to provide our coverage of Dagenham & Redbridge's away game at Shrewsbury Town. He was rewarded with a couple of nice usages this morning in the national press...



The Times, Monday 25th January 2010 - Paul Benson opens the scoring for Dagenham.



Daily Star, Monday 25th January 2010 - Dave Hibbert celebrates the equalising goal for the Shrews.

Next up for the Daggers is a vital home clash with Notts County tomorrow evening, kick-off 7.45pm. Live photographic coverage will be available via TGS. Up the Daggers!

Have to say I really like the picture from the Times. Well done Simmo - nice to see a proper goal picture being used for once.

Here is a blog subject for you Gav - why TGS Photo? What is the history behind the name and where is was born from. Be interested to read that.
