During a football match between teams from the Fairey and AV Roe aircraft factories, Fairey goal keeper Betty Stanhope destroys any hope of a score for the AV Roe team, as she knocks the ball up to hit the cross bar. The match is taking place on a snow-covered pitch at the Manchester Athletic Club ground at Fallowfield.
