Before Christmas Stalybridge Celtic Juniors were lucky enough to receive a One World football.
‘One World is a special art commission marking the centenary of the First Wolrd War through football.
Inspired by the Christmas Truce matches that were played during the First World War, Turner Prize-winning artist Mark Wallinger created the One World Football. He took inspiration from Earthrise, the iconic photograph taken half a century ago on 24 December 1968 from Apollo 8 – an image of enduring beauty that depicts a peaceful planet floating in the vastness of space.
One Wolrd is a celebration of how football brings people together. A limited edition of the One World football has been given to community projects and extraordinary individuals across the UK with the invitation to create and share their own content in response to Wallinger’s call to action. #OneWorld’
Here are a selection of shots taken of our junior players.
