Buckingham Palace hosts its first football match
Buckingham Palace has hosted its first official football match, to mark the Football Association's 150th anniversary.
The competitive fixture involving two amateur clubs was the idea of the Duke of Cambridge, the FA president.
London side Civil Service FC, the sole survivor of the 11 teams that formed the FA on 26 October 1863, took on Polytechnic FC, set up in 1875.
