One of the most romantic of football competitions in the world has to be the UK’s FA Vase (formerly The Amateur Trophy), a competition run by The FA and open to every registered Englsih team at the lower end of the semi-professional/amateur non-league pyramid (Step 5 and below). With the FA Vase Final usually held as a Wembley showpiece in early May each year (for 2015/16 both the FA Vase Final and FA Trophy Final are to be held on the same day, Sunday 22nd May, creating a new FA initiative: Non-League Finals Day) the chance for staff, players & supporters of two non-league clubs to have a ‘pinch-me’ day out at the home of football really is the stuff of boyhood dreams!

To help promote attendance at the latter stages of the 2014/15 and 2016/16 FA Vase competition, JWDC created a series of generic and team-specific posters which featured the work of dedicated non-league photographers David Bauckham, Andy Nunn and Jake Whiteley (yes, that Jake Whiteley!).
