• Short Summary

    First pictures of Football Association Council cup draw - numbered balls are picked from bag.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Cup draw, sixth round. Pathe Gazette presents exclusive pictures of Football Association Council meeting".

    For the first time in history a film is made of the Council of the Football Association in session in its offices in London. We see football teams being picked randomly to play each other.

    M/S of important looking men sitting around long table - looks like typical business meeting. The chairmen stands and announces the draw for the sixth round matches in FA Cup competition.

    The chairmen lifts a black bag and picks out a ball with a number on. It's number 4 - representing Everton Football Club. The next number is 8 - Everton will play Tottenham Hotspur or Bolton Wanderers. More numbered balls are picked, resulting in the following matches: West Bromwich v. Bristol City or Preston North End, Sheffield Wednesday v Arsenal (there is some laughter at this result), Nottingham Forest or Burnley v. Blackburn or Birmingham.

    Next the men discuss the time of kick-off.
