Chesh's Winning Photo is 'Football in a Nutshell'

Bulls News contributor Will Cheshire has been awarded for his photography skills at a ceremony in Cardiff this evening.

Will contributes to both Bulls News and Hereford Goals, and also takes photos for Abergavenny Town and other Welsh sides. He picked up the prize for best photo in the over 16's on the pitch category.

Ahead of the UEFA Champions League Final which takes place in Cardiff on Saturday, the Football Association of Wales wanted to highlight grassroots football, so launched the 'This is Welsh Football' photo competition.

Writing on Facebook after picking up his award, Will said: "Thank you everyone for messages and comments. Overwhelmed after an unbelievable evening in Cardiff.

"The event itself was a small with less than 100 private opening evening with delegates from FAW, UEFA and others. 

"Never in a million years did I think I would make the top three let alone win."

Former Welsh International Ian Rush described the photo as 'football in a nutshell, and Chesh went onto thank Abergavenny Town.

"Listening to a legend like Ian Rush talking about my picture and how it's football in a nutshell was just wow. 

"I've only been a photographer for just over 18 months and to be honest only really done it seriously over the last 12 months thanks to the opportunity that Abergavenny offered me."

Anyone in the Cardiff area tomorrow can take a look at the gallery in the Millennium Centre from 10am. The Champions League Trophy will be outside.

Congratulations Chesh from all of us at Bulls News!
