Isleham at the Haig National Village Cricket Championship Final 1975

5 mins United Kingdom

Full of optimism for the match ahead, Isleham fans, head-to-toe in blue and white, arrive at Lord’s Cricket Ground for the Haig National Village Championship in 1975. For the first time in their history, the Isleham Tigers won the Cambridgeshire league, and continued to secure a once in a lifetime place in the final at Lord’s. Not bad for a tiny Fenland village. Of course, a final is not a final without a brief, or rather no-briefs, pitch invasion by an enthusiastic streaker!

Isleham Cricket Club played South Wales team Gowerton at the Championship final at Lord's on 30 August 1975. The landlord of Isleham's Red Lion pub joins the supporters with pre-match banter. Also, Cricketer Mal Collen speaks on behalf of Isleham.

The East Anglian Film Archive, the first and largest Regional Film Archive in England, was established in 1976. Since 1984, EAFA has been owned and operated by the University of East Anglia, Norwich (UEA), to support research and work to preserve our moving image heritage. More than 250 hours are freely available online as examples of the wide range of film which attracts interest the world over.
