Just saw this on X/Twitter and thought I'd share.

This 101-year-old film features Huddersfield Town and Notts County in an FA Cup semi-final match played at Turf Moor, Burnley on 25 March 1922.
Under the tutelage of the legendary Herbert Chapman, the Yorkshire side won 3-1 and went on to beat Preston North End 1-0 in the final.

Wow- great footage. Not seen that before. Guess that's the longside.

Great footage. I was unaware the Turf had held FA Cup semis. I wonder if the Longside was terraced, or was it a cinder bank?
