Leek in the Cup! 1927

1 mins United Kingdom

The Cardiff City heroes return home from their historic victory over Arsenal to an enthusiastic welcome. The FA Cup is in the hands of Captain Fred Keenor as the team conclude their victory parade at City Hall in front of 200,000 people. The cameras' high positions capture the vast scale of the cheering crowd waiting for the moment when the silverware is held aloft for all to see.

Many of the spectators on this day would have listened to the match on the first radio commentary of an FA Cup final on the BBC. Another Topical Budget newsreel featuring the cup final itself (Cup Final 1927) is also available on BFI Player.
