Christmas on 200%: Another Sunday & Sweet FA
It’s Christmas, so we’re taking a break from words – unless anything extraordinary happens – here on Twohundredpercent in order to bring you some football-related television from the past. If you happen to be watching from a desktop or laptop and find that the entire video doesn’t fit, try minimising the size of the window a little and you should find that this does the trick.
It’s Boxing Day so there’s a full schedule of matches on today, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t take a little time to enjoy this wonderful play, which was written by Jack Rosenthal and first broadcast by Granada Television in 1972. It tells the story of a Sunday league referee who, unable to impose his own values of fair play upon two warring teams, decides to take matters into his own hands. It stars David Swift, Freddie Fletcher, Gordon McGrase and, in a performance that would lead to the offer of a role in Coronation Street that she would play for the rest of her life, the late Anne Kirkbride.
