One of the amazing survivals from the collection of Herbert Price (ASC) – which has been donated to the Society – is this football programme from a ‘Grand International Charity Football Match’ played on Boxing Day, 1918.
It’s interesting to see that the teams are made up of players from well known British teams. Do any football enthusiasts out there recognise the names? Sadly we don’t know the result.
But how could the match continue in the second half if they’d already auctioned the ball … ?!
“Oi! Can we have our ball back?”
