Shots Of The Season

19 May 2014

Club photographer Richard Blaxall chooses his best photos of 2013/14.

The 2013/14 season was another campaign fulls of thrills and spills, highs and lows and plenty of drama along the way.

Watching every game through the lens of his camera was club photographer Richard Blaxall. 

Richard was with the U's both home and away through the last nine or ten months and has captured plenty of iconic photos to reflect on the emotions involved.

Over the next few weeks, he'll be choosing his favourite fifteen photos and telling us why he particularly liked them. Today he picks one featuring our powerful front man Jabo Ibehre.

Photographers like a background full of fans that is non-distracting (unfortunately this is normally reserved for the Premier League). 

It isn't the easiest sometime to get the best looking action shots – especially when the away fans are moved to the East Stand leaving a bank of blue seats.

This was one of many that I could have picked of all-action Ibhere, including one's with elbow in eyes, feet in mouths and fingers up nostrils! Certainly a crowd favourite.

However, Jabo Ibehre is certainly one of the best current players to photograph for his all action displays and I like this photograph for the way it shows the countless times Ibehre comes up against a number of opponents and the number of ways they try to stop him.
