    The match was an F.A. Cup 5th Round Replay, played at Highbury on 24 February 1926.

  2. jamied says

    The first Arsenal goal is seen at 00:38 - the scorer is Jimmy Brain.

    The second Arsenal goal, at 01:07, is sadly obscured, but records show that the scorer was Jimmy Paterson.

    Jimmy Paterson actually scored the first goal, and is clearly seen running down the left wing nearest the camera. You can read more about him at http://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/latest/dr-jimmy-paterson-the-good-doctor-of-rangers-and-arsenal-1-2912036
