This clip is from Norwich HEART's archive film production, ‘Games, Goals and Glory’, released in 2011.

On March 19th 1960 local team, Yelverton Football Club took on Rockland All Saints on the Alpington playing fields. As the production's commentator says, the match was not without some drama – one of the Yelverton players received a bloody nose during the match. With plenty of support from their friends in the sidelines, however, the team went on to victory, winning the match 5-0 against Rockland.

Geoffrey Campling, who took the original footage, was a keen amateur filmmaker who recorded numerous films about people in Norfolk. The East Anglian Film Archive has a collection of his films.
