18th February 1925 and Maine Road hosts a crowd of over 73,000 for a 5th Round Cup tie between Division Two high fliers Manchester City and Stoke City. Topical Budget offers the usual opening shots of teams running on to the pitch - preceded rather unusually by a man with a toy rabbit on his head. The huge crowd are quite a backdrop to the match footage. Stoke's Wilson scored the only goal of the match, four minutes from time.
