22 February 1947  Manchester United  v  Blackpool   30   
Thurman   J. Frederick "Fred"   (Preston) - Kelly   John "Jack"   (Chorley) - Collinson   John R.  ( Liverpool).

Thurman seems unlikely to have been the referee as he was "only" a F.L. linesman at that time

Manchester United v Leeds 7th April and the reverse match the following day (Easter Monday & Tuesday)

A press report after the second match refers to the referee being Harry Holt (Rochdale), not H.E. Hull (Stockport)

However, there was a Herbert "Bert" E. Hull on the F.L. list until 1936-37
He was originally from Burnley, then moved to Stockport in 1935 and to Rochdale by 1939

Hull was born in 1901 so was still young enough in 1947 to officiate
so was he dragged out of "retirement" ?

If so I would have expected a mention of it in the press

However it seems odd that both programmes have Hull (if it was an error)

19 Oct  1946  Aston Villa v  Charlton Athletic  4-0
Lowe F.J.  (Bath) - Delany     John   (Chester) - Thorneycroft G.E. (?)

Thorneycroft is a mystery as no one of that name ever on F.L. lists
and not found in more local football either

Sarjeant   Donald "Don" G   (Reading)


If I remember correctly, he is prominent in our earlier Reading RA thread.
