Second Round Cup Spills and Thrills 1924

2 mins United Kingdom

Topical Budget presents a quick-fire round up of the edge-of-the-seat action from the second round of the cup. With an impressive amount of skill - and a little luck - the cameraman manages to capture four of the five unanswered goals scored by West Brom against amateur side Corinthians at the Hawthorns. Meanwhile, the match between Notts County (in white shirts) and Crystal Palace may not boast any goals, but the aggressive play was enough to rile the crowd. At Upton Park, George Kay scores the goal which would help West Ham to draw against Leeds.

If the goal area seems rather small in the Notts County match, it's because their keeper was the legendary ‘Giant’ Albert Iremonger. Sources have him as 6ft 5in but he looks taller! It took three replays between Palace and Notts County to settle it, with Palace finally winning 2-1. In the replay between West Ham and Leeds, Leeds won 1-0.
