One of the many football subjects painted by Lowry, who was always keenly interested in sport: football and cricket in particular.
Many of these pictures have either direct or imaginary links with Burnden Park, Bolton, home of Bolton Wanderers football club, a ground
only a few miles from Pendlebury and often visited by Lowry. as a young man. However, as with so many of his Industrial Landscapes,
his football pictures are usually a "composite" of the actual and the imaginary, incorporating a variety of elements from the stock mythos of
Factories, buildings and streets, woven into a "vision". As Lowry said to the writer,
"If I had shown things as they are-it would not have looked like a vision. So I had to make up symbols.
With my figures also, of course."
The picture therefore is not a picture of a particular football match but a vision of all football matches.
