    The match was played on 12 March 1932.

    The shots list says that the location is "St James Park, Newcastle-on-Tyne", however being a semi-final tie this match was played at a neutral ground - on this occasion that ground is Leeds Road, Huddersfield.

    The two Newcastle goals, (one of which is seen at 01:01), were scored by Jack Allen and Tommy Lang.

    Great - thanks for that location correction.
