After the big finale of the FA Cup Final came to an end this month, the next three matches coming up was the Football League Play-Offs at Wembley Stadium. After covering ten months of Premier League, Champions League and Europa League including the League Cup and FA Cup competitions, the EFL Play Off Finals always seemed to be the last thing you wanted to cover. The reason is, and its not because I think lower league football is not worth photographing, there are some very excellent teams in the lower leagues and during the regular I do cover some lower league football, but its actually because after covering so many matches it always feels like I have to muster up some extra energy somewhere to photograph three important finals at Wembley Stadium. Just when you thought your summer break was about to start.
The two out of the three finals I would be covering was, on Sunday, League One Play Off Final between Rotherham United vs Shrewsbury Town and on Bank Holiday Monday, League Two Play Off Final between Coventry City v Exeter City, a colleague of mine was covering the Saturday Championship Play Off Final between Fulham vs Aston Villa, so that gave me a rare Saturday off :D.
