Referee: L. J. Tirebuck | 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 | Halifax, -1962 🆘
🆘 Made a hugely questionable judgement that a ground that had not hosted football since 22nd December and had been deemed unfit to play two days before was suddenly of sufficient merit to host this hastily rearranged fixture with Villa. This was the only game to be played throughout English football.
