Sunderland v Leicester Fosse 1907

7 mins United Kingdom

By 1907 Sunderland were four-time Football League winners and three-time runners up, so it's no surprise that the team in stripes are seen to dominate their Second Division opposition (later Leicester City) in this FA Cup first round game. The band recreated their half-time music when the film screened two days later - by which time the musician on the right had hopefully cleared his spit valve!
