Boxing Day 1963 Football Results

Football matches are a traditional way to spend a Boxing Day afternoon. But on this day in 1963, pretty much every football fan who attended a match, saw something special. Take a look at these scores…

66 goals with an average of over 6.5 per game. As someone said to me today at a game, “That was in the day when they used to drink on Christmas Day.” Maybe that explains the leaky defences.
