I was rather pleased at finding Mr Suter for 37. JS or S Swain might be similar.

I knew that feeling recently!

4 & 26 (not 20) correct but not 38 although I can see the cogs working

Which leaves

01   Sounds like a very aggressive act was declared by Welsh actor Richard
19   Freelance journalist who might repair rackets too
35   Reverse this Worksop mans to get a Scouse 'keeper of the 60s
38   Severe pruner might threaten this symbol of love by overdoing the dead heading

19. I had never heard of a stringer as a journalist, but F V Stringer must be the man.
38. I R Rosekilly.
01. CH or JA Warburton.

1, 19 & 38 correct

In journalism, a stringer is a freelance journalist, photographer, or videographer who contributes reports, photos, or videos to a news organisation on an ongoing basis but is paid individually for each piece of published or broadcast work.

Leaving 35 where you perhaps don't know the first name of the Worksop ref which is helpful for solving it

I found long ago that Upton only mentions one referee from Worksop. Reversing Thompson gave me Nospmoht, which seemed an unlikely name for a keeper. I tried reversing the only Worksop man I could think of, turning (Lee) Westwood into Eastwood, but that got me nowhere.
Mr Thompson was L D, so if the L stood for Lawrence, that  might take us to Liverpool keeper Tommy Lawrence.
