  • Description

    Item title reads: "Jockeys At Play! 20,000 people see & enjoy North & South Football Match & the Donkey Derby."

    Headingley, Yorkshire

    M/S diminutive football teams of jockeys walk onto pitch watched by crowd. Both team captains shake referee's hand. Shots of game in progress. Winning team receive a cup from a minister in a dog collar who stands head and shoulders taller. The jockeys, wearing silks, then ride round on tiny ponies encouraged by officials. One jockey tries in vain to make a stubborn pony move and the winning jockey receives a cup.

    Note: This looks very funny as the donkeys are so small and the winning cup is tiny.
