    Background: On arrival at field the so called "rostrum" proved to be nothing more than an corrugated ricketty iron roof. (Original rostrum erected has apparently recently been demolished).. Our cameraman and two assistants plus native boys hastily collected wooden planks, to reinforce the roof; but nevertheless this procedure took quite a time, and the first five minutes of play was missed by Camera 1 only. This cameraman apologises if any shots are shaky, but his unhappy position was more than a little precarious!! Game proved to be very one sided, and disappointing to spectators generally. Result 5 - 0 victory to Preston North End. Varied exposures, shots ranging from 18 to 5.3 (Dusk here is 5.45 p.m. Game finished at 5.15 p.m.).
