Here's a look at a selection of his action shots from a Pitching In Northern Premier League East match in which honours ended even.

Table topping Liversedge, who went unbeaten in all their league matches in 2021 and had not dropped a home point this season, looked to be starting the New Year as they ended the last as they led through Lewis Whitham.

But Colls continued their resurgent recent form as they hit back to earn a draw with substitute Callum Brook tapping in from close range 13 minutes from time.

The game was played in front of a crowd of 849 as the NPL is continuing to excite this season.
