So where do all these images end up?

In newspapers and magazines on the whole, both of a national and regional flavour. Here's a random selection of our football-related tearsheets with a few words about the stories behind them...



Dagenham & Redbridge snapper Dave Simpson captures plenty of celebrations as the Victoria Road brigade certainly haven't been goal-shy this season. This one stands out for me as a particularly nice usage. Jon Nurse's brace against Lincoln City is highlighted in The Sun on 31st August 2009.



I don't cover as many Football League matches as I would like to. However, I do squeeze in a few between my other duties and this usage shows that it's not always what happens on the pitch that is of interest. Some of you may have forgotten about Ali-G but I spotted a lookalike in the stand at Millwall recently, proving that the Staines Massive is still alive and kicking. Not a great night for the visitors as they were roundly despatched from the FA Cup but The Sun published my shot of the 'gutted' Ali-G on 10th December 2009.



George Phillipou made the trip to the Valley for Charlton's match with Swindon. It turned out to be a dramatic encounter with the Addicks stealing a point at the death despite playing the second-half with just nine men! George was on hand to capture Miguel Llera's emotional outburst after he scored the homesters' vital second goal. The Sun ran his image nice and big on 28th December 2009.



Top West Ham snapper Rob Newell ensures that TGS has a superb archive of Hammers' images. The Evening Standard recognised this when they used a shot of Matthew Upson in action against Chelsea on 21st December 2009. The image was used on the back page of the paper and this is the online usage that accompanied the printed version.



The stock fodder of the national press is the goal and celebration image but sometimes a well-composed action shot stands out from the crowd. Martin Dalton captured this intense tussle during the match between Colchester United and Yeovil Town and The Sun ran it large along with the match report on 17th August 2009.



Mark Hodsman was present at (arguably) the biggest upset of the FA Cup 1st Round. Bath City made the long trip to Grimsby and dumped the Mariners out of the Cup with a comfortable victory. The Sun enjoyed Mark's excellent team celebration image and used it in the paper on 9th November 2009.

Just a few our bits and bobs. I'll update with some other sports at a later date!
