    West Ham, Leeds, Birmingham and Cardiff

    Footballers run out of the tunnel, one team in dark, one in light shirts. The weather is a bit misty and the ground muddy. One player slips over in the mud. Brief shot of the tightly massed crowd, all wearing hats.

    Intertitles read: "Wembley Their Goal! Huge crowds see Leeds (3) defeat Sunderland (2). "
    Teams both play in striped shirts
    "Wembley Their Goal! Huge crowds see Birmingham (4) defeat Manchester City (1)
    "Wembley Their Goal! Huge crowds see Cardiff City (2) defeat Aston Villa (1)
    There is a panning shot across the faces in the crowd who wave hands and hats.

    In each match we see the captains shake hands in front of the referee and toss a coin. There are sequences of play but no goals.
    The Birmingham match also has an intertitle which reads "These crowd scenes are taken exclusively for the Grange Super Camera and can only be seen here. Showing all the week"
    The camera pans across the front rows of the crowds, mostly men, a few ladies, who are well wrapped up in furs. Some crowds on the stands wave their hats.
