Newfooty on the BBC

Post by lionofludesch » 05 Jan 2018, 10:39

BBC Scotland are currently running a trailer for the Scottish Cup.

The plot appears to be that the silver bloke from the top of the cup goes AWOL, looking for a game and gate-crashes a Newfooty game between, it seems, Hamilton Accies and Berwick Rangers.

Looks like a cracking set - I'd love that in my collection.

They have a pre-war newfooty set on display in the museum at Hampden where this short film appears to have been made .. not keen on them myself

The bases weren't right.

Quite like the players in action poses, though. Reminds me of the cricket bowler figure.
