Portsmouth War League (A)

Portsmouth Evening News

Report courtesy of Steve Bell

As a prelude to the opening of the 1941-42 season, 16 clubs in the South Regional League refused to accept their fixtures as issued by the Football League. All the London area clubs were in this group, plus Crewe Alexandra who had been included in the " South " ! The reason given was the inability to make long journeys in the war-time conditions, and this was underlined by the fact that Birmingham, Coventry City, Hull City, Notts County and Southend United did not even enter.
