Oddly, all the Division 1 referees have surnames starting with the letters A, B or C.

And all the Division 2 referees have surnames starting with letters ranging from C - H.

Perhaps the appointments secretary only had the first half of his contacts book to work from that week!

All 40 appear in the early fixtures except Howcroft & Johns

I think A.W. Campbell (Arsenal v Liverpool Sept 2nd) may be an error for A.W. Cooknell
