    Item title reads: " Honours Even! Thousands packed to suffocation see Liverpool and Everton tie 1 goal each in local derby. "

    Liverpool, England

    Opening shot of a huge crowd round the pitch, some are treated by St. Johns Ambulance men. Crowds spill over the touchline. A man has fainted and the police try to push back the crowds. The teams emerge from the tunnel. The referee shakes hands with the team captains. They toss a coin and the game begins, watched by the vast crowd in the stadium. Shots of the game in progress.

    Note: VHS Sleeve title indicates 'Honours Given' Dixie Dean plays in the match. The crowd spilling onto the pitch looks like a forerunner of the tragedy at Hillsborough.
