Now a fascinating piece of black and white film from 1920, possibly the earliest featuring Coventry City. There are wonderful shots of an early Highfield Road ground when CCFC entertained Birmingham on the 11th December 1920 in front of more tham 22,000 fans. The Bantams as CCFC were known then are in light shirts and Birmingham feature shirts with a chevron. Sadly CCFC lost 4-0 at home but shots of the type of football played and the crowd give a real sense of nearly a century ago!! The film comes from the British Pathe archive.
