Irish Cup Semi- Final Coleraine V Ballymena 1929

1 mins United Kingdom

Windsor Park, Belfast hosts the Irish Cup Semi-final, 9 February 1929. Ballymena, wearing the light shirts and white shorts, play Coleraine. The view of the intermittent steam trains and the church (possibly St Thomas' Parish Church) in the background of the action shows that this newsreel footage was shot from one half of the pitch only, from behind the goal defended by Coleraine.

The film was shot by newsreel company Gaumont Graphic: the date of the match has been derived from the edition number appearing on the film's title page.
