  • Description

    Full title reads: "For miners' children fund women of neighbouring colliery villages oppose each other in spirited game of football".

    Newcastle, Tyne and Wear.

    Charity football match to raise money for striking miners' families.

    M/S of a team of women footballers in striped shirts. They stand and kneel in two rows, two nurses stand at either side of them. Similar shot of opposing team in white shirts with 'v' shapes on.

    M/S of the two captains shaking hands with each other and the male referee. We see them toss the coin to decide kick off. Various shots of the game. The match takes place on a field at back of terrace house street, a crowd watches from sidelines. The players are enthusiastic but not really that good!
