1930's Elecrto Football

Electro football is a five-a-side soccer game under glass. The players catch the ball and automatically kick it back out in the direction of play.

The five men on each side can be rotated to catch and shoot via brass wheels at each end of the cabinet. The balls are manually lifted to the pitch with a separate wheel at the coin entry end.

and repair.
