Now that's a crowd that is. I remember my old man telling me there was regularly crowds of forty thousand at HP back in those days.

According to wikipedia the rugby county championship final was also held at Home Park in 1961. A game that finished with a score, that while common in proper football, I've never come across in rugby of nil each.
A nil all in football suggests a borefest, but just imagine how tedious it would be in a game of rugby.

Did anyone else notice on the final episode of Peaky blinders when they were in the betting shop they had the second division football results on the chalk board (mid 1930's) I didn't see the home team but Plymouth City lost 2 1. Does anyone know of we were always referred to as Plymouth City back then? I know the Argyle is meant to go back to our roots with the Argyle and Sutherland regiment who were stationed down here at the time.

Many hours debating this one. No idea on date or who the opposition is. It's that old, I'd hazard a guess at Argo V King Arthur's all stars! The trees in the background looks like that side is the Lyndhurst.
