Bradford City v Gainsborough Trinity 1903

United Kingdom

Bradford's Valley Parade ground has a troubled past, but it looks remarkably atmospheric here with a crowd of 11,000 enjoying the team's first league home fixture, though Gainsborough spoiled the party by winning 1-3. One of Mitchell & Kenyon's best football films, this gives us 21st century spectators a better view than those precariously balanced on top of the massive Empire Theatre billboard.
