  • Description

    Full title reads: "The Stadium, West Ham. They're in deadly earnest ... that's what makes it so funny! - The Jockeys beat the Boxers in annual charity match by 6 goals to 4."

    West Ham, London.

    A team of footballers walk out onto the pitch at West Ham - by the looks of their build I would suggest these are the boxers. The next team - much shorter in stature and slighter in build - come out - the jockeys.

    The two captains come to the centre to shake hands with the referee and to toss the coin. The difference in size between the two is quite obvious.

    The kick off is ceremonially taken and play begins.

    The jockeys score a goal - even though the size difference between the teams is obvious.

    More shots of the match. The jockeys score a penalty (viewed from behind the goal).

    The jockeys score more goals. They seem to be out running the boxers
