In February and March of 2014, I joined Lev Wood for the Uganda stretch of his Walking The Nile expedition. I was writing several articles, and taking photos to go alongside them. I noticed that lots of the local lads in villages were wearing Arsenal shirts, which I decided to photograph for Andrew Allen. Andy is my oldest friend (in years I’ve known him, not age!), best mate and an avid Arsenal fan, so he was delighted to see such enthusiastic Arsenal support in Central Africa.
So delighted, in fact, that he decided to put them up on Arsenal Collective – a blog for Arsenal fans, by Arsenal fans – complete with an interview about the trip! You can read the Arsenal Collective feature here, see the Arsenal Collective selection here, and my entire album of Ugandan football photos here.
