David Bauckham set up Centre Circle Publishing in 2007. Originally from South East London, his first experience of non-League football was watching Dulwich Hamlet FC in the early 1970s, and their vast, crumbling Champion Hill Stadium of that time made a lasting impression. David's principal interest is the sociocultural aspects of all sport, but particularly non-League football (soccer) and the settings in which the match takes place: the grounds and minutiae within, and the spectators themselves.

On moving to East Sussex in 1987, he began to take a keen interest in the Sussex non-League scene and Langney Sports FC (now Eastbourne Borough FC) in particular, which led to him setting up the Club's first website in 2000. Although no longer the 'webmaster' he is still occasionally active at the Club as matchday announcer when not travelling around the UK photographing other non-League clubs.

He has published three books to date: 'The Non League Football Grounds of Sussex' (2003), 'Dugouts' (2006), and 'A Season Of Sussex Soccer' (2008), the latter with Terry Buckman, under the Centre Circle Publishing imprint. In addition his photographs have been exhibited at the University of Brighton; and featured in numerous publications including 'Groundtastic' (UK), 'Stopper' (Sweden), '11 Freunde' (Germany), and 'Concrete Wave' (US); as well as The Mail On Sunday, Four Four Two, When Saturday Comes and Time Out.

In 2009 David successfully completed a Masters degree in Sport, Culture and Society at Chelsea School (University of Brighton); and July 2011 received a Football Supporters' Federation award for 'Amateur Photographer Of The Year'
