To play 80 minutes instead of 90


November 26, 1915
The Management Committee of the Football League met at Manchester, yesterday, and decided that in the month of December the game should be of eighty minutes’ duration instead of ninety minutes: also that referees should have the power to dispense with the half-time interval at his discretion.
