Brentford v Wigan – TV footage


You can watch – YouTube permitting – full coverage of the 1985 Freight Rover Trophy Final, via the videos below.

The first three videos are around 30 minutes each, and the last one is around 15 minutes. If you just want to quickly skim the footage, rather than watch it all, then the first few minutes of the first video is worth watching for the pre-match atmosphere and the teams coming out and the presentation to Elton John.

All the goals from the match can be seen right at the end of the fourth video after the sign-off by commentator Martin Tyler. In the minutes immediately before this can be seen the trophy presentation and interviews with Bryan Hamilton, the winning manager, whilst in the famous Wembley bath, and also with goal-scorer Mike Newell.
