Celebrating the passion that runs through to the amateur level of Dutch football, Photographer Willem de Kam captures the intensity of two traditional derbies. Quite remarkable.

Amateur football, pride of place is the Sunday league - usually going hand in hand with tough tackling, mud splattered scenes this photo journal from Willem de Kam spins this cliche on it's head with a piece for Dutch football magazine Staantribune.

Some description

Grabbing the spirit of football by the jugular, the piece features two games; one in Katwijk between Quick Boys and VV Katwijk, and one in Spakenburg between SV Spakenburg and IJsselmeervogels. Simply heroic with energy simmering you can see more brilliant work of his here. Do check out Staantribune too.
