Notts County v Middlesbrough (1902)

The game is held up for the camera to do a full tour of the cheering crowds at Trent Bridge, Notts County's home until 1910.

Non-Fiction 1902 7 mins Silent


The cheering crowds on view are about to see a 2-0 home win that put Notts County at the top of the First Division, though the season would end with the Magpies in a disappointing 14th place, just behind Middlesbrough. The difference between the crowds in the standing and seated sections is striking - particularly the number of women, who are completely absent from the terraced sections.
