Non-Fiction 1903 2 mins Silent


This film of a Burnley home game against unknown opposition (possibly Doncaster Rovers?), captures some unusually close shots of play and a lively crowd. At one point, a clearly intoxicated spectator is led away while, at the end, an attack on goal by Burnley (in dark tops) produces an alarming surge in the stand. The incongruous shot of a little girl has probably crept in from a different film.
