Cup Fever Film-Talking Pictures TV.
« on: Thu 18 Feb 2021 12:32 »
Watched a 1965 Film "Cup Fever" on Talking Pictures. It was a children's film made in 1965 about a children's football team in Manchester.
The last 15 mins focus on a Cup Final at Altrincham FC. The referee is in many shots and is wearing an A of FLR&L Badge and looks the part.
Just wondering if anyone has any knowledge of the identity of the referee or the film.

Thanks JT. I remember several of the refs you list and I don't think the guy we see clearly at 56.11 is any of these. Sadly I don't remember all the refs listed and a Google search does not reveal a name. One for Boris10 perhaps? I'll have a look at the whole film sometime but a blatant dive to get a penalty just  before 56. If only VAR had been there!  ;D
