Football plans for the future


September 12, 1939
Two important meetings.
A meeting of the Management Committee of the Football League will take place at Preston on Thursday and the Football Association will meet next Monday. In order to facilitate matters the members of the League Management Committee have appointed their Lancashire representatives to form a sub-committee to deal with the game in wartime. This solves the problem of travelling and for the time being all League meetings will be held at the headquarters in Preston.

Questioned about the possibility of an early resumption of organised football, Mr. Fred Haworth, the League secretary, expressed the view that even if the Football Association withdrew their ban on competitive football some little time must elapse because there were so many problems.
