 1921-22 Season Notes 

Once again the league was broadly structured on a back to back basis with clubs playing one another in an initial fixture then playing the reverse fixture a few days later with. Once again this threw arrangement up anomalies however after three seasons of mid table finishes both before and after the Great War, Villa finally found some form to finish 5th in the league and scoring more goals than the eventual league champions that season, Liverpool. Both Billy Walker and Ian Dickson hit 20 league goals whilst Billy Kirton also reached double figures.
