    The 'unidentified man' who introduces the film and the players is the Arsenal manager Hebert Chapman, whose club helped sponsor the scheme. ( for source see Herbert Chapman: Football Emperor: A Study in the Origins of Modern Soccer, Stephen Studd, 1981, p.114)

    "Charlie Buchann" in the text and "Charlie Buchanan" in the tags should read Charlie Buchan.

    "Arthur Grimsdale" in text and tags should read Arthur Grimsdell.
