It’s not long now before we enter a new era in the Olympic Stadium, but the Boleyn Ground will forever hold a huge place in our hearts.
The final game against Manchester United was arguably the most incredible we’ll ever experience in our lifetime, as well the entire last season at our old stadium. It was a season we’ll never, ever forget.
But if only we could have captured a moment from each of our 19 home Premier League games before leaving the Boleyn Ground?
Well that’s pretty much what photographer and season ticket holder Tom Hughes did, who took a photo just before the kick-off of all our home league games last season. The result?
An incredible A1 Farewell Boleyn print…
Each and every photo was taken from the same seat in the Sir Trevor Brooking stand and encapsulates that unique moment in time before each game.
Tom said: “I originally made the piece for my Grandad who has been a season ticket holder at the Boleyn for as long as I can remember.
“He of course received Edition 1 and then people began asking about it and the demand has been growing since then.
“The key idea for the piece is that it captures 19 moments (each taken just before kick off) and collectively represent, as we call it, ‘A Moment in Time’ representing the final season.”
Only 100 were made in the first print run, and you can get your own limited edition copy for just £79 by clicking here.
