Your Game Newcastle in pictures

The water bottles

Photographer Daniel Richardson was on hand to document the Your Game Newcastle event in pictures. Here are his favourite images from the day.

Mr Silky Skillz in action

"Mr Silky Skillz performs a trick while encouraging the crowd to clap to the beats being played by the 1Xtra DJs."

Graffiti man hard at work

"Tools of the trade - one of the graffiti artists hard at work on the cube, turning what started out as a drab, mauve canvas into a vibrant, exciting piece."

The graffiti wall in full splendour

"Both graffiti artists tagged 'Your Game' as well as their own names. I was glad I photographed these pieces, a chance to save what is otherwise a very transient art form."

A team lines up for a photo

"All the teams were from different walks of life. Your Game is about bringing a range of people from different backgrounds and cultures together and building a community spirit."

He shoots...he scores

"He shoots...he scores! This player powers a shot past the keeper into the net. There was a lot of skill and enthusiasm displayed throughout the day."

Newcastle women in action

"There was no shortage of action in the women's games either. The final ended in a penalty shoot-out, but the smiles showed the girls were having a great time."

A player gets a helping hand with his boots

"A player reclines in the sun as a team member helps with his boots. The whole day was an example of what can be achieved when people work together - and not just on the pitch."

A quick drinks break

"Thirsty work - two players share a bottle of water at full-time. With only two minutes between games this is only a quick refresher."

The energy drinks ladies take a breather

"These two girls arrived at 3pm with crates of energy drinks, just in time to give the players a lift before the semis. By the looks of things they could've had a can each themselves!"

Sombrero man

"The manager of the winning men's team is 'crowned' in a big blue sombrero during the post-game celebrations. He was so ecstatic he could barely speak for the interview!"

My new hat

"Bring home the silver - the team captain of the winning men's team celebrates by wearing the trophy cap as a hat."

A Mackem displays the Sunderland badge

"When all the games were over the true team colours of the participants' came out for display. The gentleman sporting the Sunderland strip is clearly proud to be a fan."

The Voodoo bag

"Voodoo Bag - this guy was part of the winning team's entourage. He attributed his team's success to a little bit of voodoo magic which he had hidden in his bag."

The winners' prizes

"Trophy table - the winners' medals and trophies, along with the Fair Play footballs awarded to the teams who displayed the best attitude. Best of luck for the finals!"
