• Short Summary

    Film of the start of the Football season and the end of the Cricket one.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Everywhere. Football ... again! 'Soccer's' huge army of fans welcome another Season, with its thrills and disappointments ..."

    Footballers in white shirts run out onto the pitch. Players in dark shirts follow them out.

    L/S of football match. Good footage of one of the goalkeepers in action. We even see the ball go into the back of the net - sadly we don't see who kicked it.

    (Sadly the sound track is missing for the football section so it is difficult to identify the two teams.)

    Intertitle reads: "... and thrilling 'championship' duel between Sussex and Yorkshire, wound up one of 'King Cricket's' finest Seasons!"

    L/S of Yorkshire vs. Sussex cricket match. Leyland is at the crease and hits a couple of good shots. The crowd applaud. Maurice Tate runs up to bowl at Leyland. The fielders appeal and Leyland is given out. The batsman walks dejectedly from the cricket field.

    High angle shot of the crowd. They are sitting right down to the boundary.

    (The sound track of the cricket section cuts in and out.)
