• Short Summary

    Good shots of the Arsenal Football Team in training; manager and trainer discuss fitness levels.

  • Description

    Highbury, London.

    At Arsenal Football Club ground we see members of the Arsenal team running around the pitch. Their manager, George Allison, stands watching them. The players stand around George as he chats to their trainer, Tom Whittaker. George says something about the men getting fitter over the coming weeks. Tom says he thinks the players are all fit now, and he doesn't know how to get them any fitter.

    The footballers stand in a line and head a ball to each other up and down the line - very impressive! Team Captain Hapgood shakes hands with new player Bryn Jones. Bryn kicks a ball then does some dribbling with the others.
