  • Description

    Tottenham Hotspurs football club in training.

    M/S of the boys playing. A goal is scored. Coach shows them a few techniques. He wiggles his bottom around and the boys laugh. He swings around a football on a rope and the boys have to jump over it. We see this again in slow motion. Elkes is featured in C/U. He laughs. We see him in action in C/U trapping then kicking the ball. Clay is featured in C/U, he smiles and laughs. We see him kick the ball over his head behind him. Lowe is seen smiling in C/U, we see him kick a ball in slow motion.

    Lindsay smiles in C/U (missing some front teeth!) then we see him kick the ball in slow motion. Jimmy Seed can do other things besides kick - he is also a cartoonist. We see him in C/U then in L/S as he sketches the coach whilst two other team members watch. C/U of the notebook in which he sketches. Smith is seen performing a throw in - slow motion. Goalie saves the ball in slow motion and kicks it away from the goal.

    "Elkes" is Jack Elkes.

    "Clay" is Tommy Clay.

    "Lowe" is Harry Lowe".

    "Lindsay" is Alex Lindsay.

    "Smith" is Bert Smith.

    "Goalie saves the ball" - this looks likely to be Geordie Maddison.
