    Football Cup Final match where Manchester City beat Leicester City 1 - 0 - goal missing!

  • Description

    No titles. The Cup Final - Manchester City v Leicester City.

    This item is in colour.

    Wembley, London.

    General view of the cheering crowd. The two teams come out onto the pitch. Leicester are in white, Manchester in red and black stripes. The two captains toss for the start of the match - we are told they used a new 50 pence piece. M/S of King Hussein in the spectator stand. M/S of Princess Anne in the royal box - this is her first Cup Final.

    Various shots of the match. Unfortunately, the section of film showing Manchester's goal, the only goal of the match, is missing! We see the team congratulating each other and the crowd cheering. More shots of the match.

    Marching band in red uniforms and bearskin hats parade across pitch during half-time. More shots in second half. A few near misses but no more goals. Final score Manchester City 1 Leicester City 0. Manchester players congratulate each other on pitch.

    The team go up to receive trophy cup from Princess Anne. Crowd cheers. C/U of Joe Mercer (manager?) on pitch. Players run round the pitch carrying their cup. Captain Tony Brook (Book?) sits on shoulders of others and holds cup in the air.

    Colour print used for transfer is quite scratched - neg missing. This print version does not include the only goal of the match!
