  • Short Summary

    Nice footage of football match in Cardiff.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "Fourth round of the cup - Len Davies brings joy to 40,000 Cardiff supporters by scoring dramatic equalising goal in last minute of match."

    Cardiff, Wales.

    Panning shot of men queuing to get into the football ground. Camera pans to show that there is a huge queue. Doesn't seem to be any women there. High angle shot showing police horse on parade as men walk towards the ground.

    Nice footage of the teams walking out onto the pitch. Captains shake hands with the ref. Various shots of the match. Nicely filmed for the time. We see goalie saving one and striker falling over. Low angle shot of large number of men hanging over the top of a large sign advertising the Sunday Express - free plug from Pathe! Panning shot of the large crowd shows other large advertising hoardings with men sitting on them for the best view.

    We see Cardiff (I think) score a goal. More footage from a high vantage point of the game - must have had quite a few cameras there.

    Note: no record of which team were Cardiff's opponents.
