Re: Football

A sad reflection, as you say. Definitely worth checking.

At our rugby club, the parents sign a release form when they sign their little darlings up which says that events may be photographed and used for publicity purposes. Likewise when other clubs come to play matches or tournaments. I still feel a bit wary when photographing and make sure I am wearing a club shirt and have my membership card, and know who our Child Protection Officer is so I can refer any complaint to them.

Having said that, I have never yet had any trouble. Rather the opposite in fact - there might be a game going on with what looks like hundreds or under-9s buzzing around like wasps and a proud mum asks if I can photograph her sproglet - difficult when the little *****ers all look the same to me!
