• Short Summary

    Cricket season ends as the football season starts.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "EXIT CRICKET - ENTER FOOTBALL".

    Long shot of cricketer Bill Edrich batting in Test Match against Australia with Australia's captain Hassett bowling. Football match in progress. Crowds cheering - small game. Close up shot of Sammy Crooks, Chairman of AFPU (Association of Football Players Union), and Arsenal Manager George Allison speaking and shaking hands.

    Note: the conversation between Sammy and George is about current difficult situation in football world - seems to be something about players wanting more money. Sammy Crooks seems very uncomfortable about being interviewed.
