Notes

Walsall, 09 December, Auto Windscreen Shield, Round 1
The round number was not on the source of this list, as we might have got a bye to the 2nd round I cannot be certain this was the 1st round. As we got knocked out there is no later round number to go by. I had a quick search on Walsall websites but couldn't find a results archive for this season. I will try to confirm this.

15 November...

There are two games recorded on this day. This is most likely a typo on the date for the Herts Senior Cup game. This will be corrected ASAP (once I've found a programme that old!)

See Below...
If you are looking for any "see below for notes" you may need to visit the relevant page in our
A to Z history. It is usually about missing attendances but sometimes there are additional (and even amusing) footnotes.

Make a note of the team name and find them on the page linked to above.

If you can help with any missing information (or have a correction to make) I would love to hear from you on info@bfcsa.co.uk
