Shots Of The Season

29 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 of the best shots of the season, featuring Macauley Bonne.

4 – Macauley Bonne winning goal against Peterborough 
I have been a huge Colchester United fan for the past 20 years and evidently this involves many different emotions from game to game.

Trying to remember not to jump up and celebrate a goal is something that took time but the feeling of capturing a specific moment that can be enjoyed not just by myself but with the club as a whole is certainly a great feeling.

The stand out occasion this season for this was Macauley Bonne's first goal for the first team.

Having photographed Macca first appearing for the U18s, to then most recently making his first team debut, typified what this club is all about. Such a photo will stick in the mind as hopefully the first in a long conveyor belt of such talent coming through and performing for the first team.
