  • Short Summary

    Chelsea beat West Ham in football match in very foggy conditions.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "West Ham. 'Phantom Football' Football fans pack every ground - despite fog blanket - to see (!) their favourites succeed or fail in long trail to Wembley. (Chelsea 3 - West Ham 1)."

    Upton Park, West Ham, London.

    Players from West Ham team run out onto pitch followed by Chelsea team.

    The two captains toss a coin - they both look cold.

    Various shots of football match in fairly foggy conditions. In some places you can hardly see what is happening. We see some goals scored (just!).

    N.B. I guess this was an FA Cup tie because of the reference to Wembley in the title. The film is quite badly scratched in places and shows signs of some damage.
