Delivering to Deepdale

Piling on the pressure

At the start of the 2013-14 season 8 matches involving founder members were chosen to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the Football League, among them was Preston North End versus Wolverhampton Wanderers – Preston of course being the original ‘Invincibles’ going through the entire first season without suffering a single defeat. Rob was commissioned to capture the events of that day and its place in the the greater community which he did superbly especially in his painting of two boys playing in the backstreets tilted ‘Tales of Tom and Billy’ remembering two of the favorite sons of the two teams who have now taken there place in football mythology.
