A photographer, who goes by the single name of Baker, has documented the love for amateur Sunday league football in a new series titled 'All Roads Lead to Wembley.'

Those belonging to this quirky sporting sub-culture are known for their unparalleled enthusiasm, which is expressed using colorful language and superstitious habits. Baker captures the rituals of the community, while thoughtfully observing the structure of the "football pyramid," a system that theoretically means any team has a chance of playing at the all-important English stadium.

The photographs were taken at Hackney Marshes, a field that many matches take place at each week. Baker is a stickler for detail, picking out special moments that might otherwise be overlooked.
