“Grass Roots is a season long look at the UK’s unofficial home of Sunday League Football – Hackney Marshes – and how the many people who populate its pitches are the real lifeblood of the beautiful game.

This photographic project, shot on a medium format film camera by Simon Di Principe celebrates the cultural diversity of those who venture out into East London for a 10:30am kick off: week in, week out for nothing more than the pleasure of playing.

Grass Roots is a healthy reminder about what a welcoming city London is, the breadth of community spirit that can be fostered through organised sports leagues and how amateur football is a gateway to settling into a happy life in Britain”
