Description

This is a film showing action from Sheffield Wednesday playing at home to Arsenal, and two reserve team fixtures.  

The film begins showing the club name on the top of the South Stand at Hillsborough Stadium.  The first match looks to be against Arsenal, with Ian Ure playing for Arsenal, possibly the match in March 1964.  The second match, judging by the small crowd, is a reserve team game against a team in yellow shirts and socks and white shorts, possibly Blackpool.  The third game is against a team in red shirts and socks and white shorts, possibly Manchester United.  After some brief shots of a garden, a canal lock and a house, the film ends showing a souvenir photograph of the Manchester Evening News of the Manchester United team before the Munich disaster of March 1958, with Foulkes, Colman, Whelan, Wood, Jones, Edwards, Berry, Viollet, Byrne, Taylor and Pegg.
