    Intertitle: "THE VICTORY SMILE. The French Girls Football Team conclude their tour, having beaten England in their last game."

    M/S of a bus crammed with excitable French women in berets. The women, female footballers, lean out of the windows waving and shouting. C/U of the women, a man standing outside the bus shakes their hands, they try to knock off his cap.

    Note: this story relates closely to another gazette story - WOMEN FOOTBALLERS - in G 662. This story contains some excellent shots of women playing football (possibly even the same women seen here!) - Another woman's football story is SOCCER BY SEARCHLIGHT in G 730. AH 2000.
