Arnold Mitchell's Football

Made during the 1950s, this 18 panel leather ball is typical of footballs used at this time in English Football.

This particular ball was used in matches by Exeter City, and belonged to a City Legend, Arnold Mitchell, following his departure from the club in 1966.

This item was 3D scanned and modelled by Graham Fereday, and the team, at the Digital Humanities Lab at the University of Exeter, during the Heritage Lottery Funded 'History of St James Park' project.
