I bought this photo described as "unknown" on the strength of its being a packed crowd at Highbury so my first thought was it was Arsenal in white at home to a team in red.

But a close-up of the defender facing the camera reveals a tell-tale badge so while it was a "mystery", I'm happy to say it isn't a mystery to me now. But I won't spoil your fun so will leave you to work out the fixture and possibly, the player in white which I think I have also solved.

Here it is:-



Player in white



Defender facing camera



Enjoy and if you come up with a different fixture to me I'd be amazed and delighted!

No idea if correct or not, and I could be decades out, but my guess is

02/12/1936 England v Hungary (6-2)

Just because the badge on the shirt looks like Hungary's

Apologies if it is a daft answer!

Well, it took you guys 13 minutes to crack it - between you.

It's England v Hungary 2.12.1936, and it was 6-2 to England.

Ted Drake scored a hat-trick and I reckon this is him scoring one of them with the keeper (Szabo) stranded.

Well done chaps. Not a tough test. Indeed once I opened the envelope and sat down in front of my screen, it took me about 13 minutes too!

Cheers!
