Coventry City 1-0 Walthamstow Avenue – F.A. Cup 1st Round – Sat 16/11/1957

1957-58: Having beaten Bedford Town 1-0 in a replay at Green Pond Road in the 4th Qualifying Round of the F.A. Cup, Avenue were drawn away at Third Division South Coventry City in the 1st Round Proper.

I’m not sure why Coventry wore red & white in this game, as supposedly their home kit was blue & white at the time. The A’s turned out in green & white – was this their away kit at the time?

Coventry went out 4-1 at Aldershot in the next round.
