In this clip from the 1970s Posh are playing a team which is not identified. Some believe the opposition team is Walsall and the match might be a league game from 1977.

A big crowd is seen enjoying the game and the images of youngsters sitting on the advertising hoardings will bring back great memories for many.

The scenes can be viewed on historic footage in the Pathe news archive.
