Bradford Park Avenue v Czechoslovakia 1961 - Inauguration of foodlights

External image

This is a beauty. Match to mark the inauguration of the floodlights at the Park Avenue stadium in Bradford. Nearly seventeen and a half thousand were present to see the vistors win 3-2. Sadly less than 13 years later BPA went into liquidation and left the league. Park Avenue itself is still a sports ground but the stands have long been demolished.
