Taken many years ago now --must be 1973 or 1974 at Wembley Stadium when Billericay Town won the 'FA Vase' -- I was covering it for the 'Billericay ARGUS' newspaper which went broke in 1980. It says on print ' Asahi Pentax Electro=Spotmatic + 300mm f5.5 Hanimex, Ilford HP5 processed in Promicrol.
I no longer have that CAMERA but I do still have that old LENS. I scanned a darkroom print found in my files.

Excellent action shot. Who needs AF...

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Ha ha -- sometimes if I didn't get the ball in the right place near enough the Sports Writer used to 'cheat' and cut out a ball and stick it on the print where HE wanted it then the print would go for letterpress block making and pic would come out in the paper looking 'Perfec' all BEFORE PhotoShop was invented !!
