  • The result of this match was void and had to be replayed again due to H Easter being an unregistered player
  • H Easter had scored direct from a corner kick in the first half, however, owing to the rules of the time this was not allowed as a goal
  • Evidence of early tactical play - the West London Observer reporting that after Fulham took the lead in the second half, David Lloyd played as a third full back, with Freddie Hopkinson playing as a fourth half back to strengthen the defence and hold the lead
