I'm actually tempted to record a commentary track to go over the top of it

Absolutely fantastic!  What a find, and 19 minutes of it too.   Is there any grass on the pitch ?   The ball often just gently rolls to a halt.  With heavy pitches like that and the leather ball and no substitutes the players must have been exhausted. To see the gap for the cantilever is really interesting historically, probably the only moving images of it at that stage.

Rattles, hats, old knitted bar scarves (I have one still), marvellous, it's made my night.

Thanks for posting.

Really interesting stuff that. The team in the early 60s were obviously something to be reckoned with.

 

I have seen pictures of the ground like that but when I started going in the early/mid 70s the West & North Stand were long established.

 

The pitch, can you imagine the present team trying to play on that.

 

As for any video of the 7-2, I would imagine the manure fans will have seen to that being destroyed long ago!
