3 mins United Kingdom

Wolverhampton Wanderers, winners of the 1949 FA Cup are seen in action in this amazing colour film from Austerity Britain. Filmed at their Molineux ground during the following season, the players, including their legendary captain, Billy Wright, are seen posing for an official photograph. Also seated with them is their manager, Stan Cullis. Then play begins. During half-time, look out for the FA Cup itself, being displayed to the crowd by four bearers. Then play resumes.

Eric Norman, who made this film, was a one-time director of Wolverhampton Wanderers.
