1945-46 was a transitional season
for football. The end of the war in
Europe and the Far East came too late for many professional players to be
demobbed from the services, so the formal League programme was not resumed until
1946-47. However, a full programme
of FA Cup games took place. The
rounds proper featured the only two-legged ties in the history of the
competition. Huge attendances
watched the games. “The Forgotten
FA Cup” tells the full story of the 1945-46 FA Cup, using player reminiscences
and contemporary accounts.
Contents also include full results of the qualifying rounds, complete
line-ups and scorers for the rounds proper and a list of all the players that
took part. The book also includes
all Football League results and dates from the regional competitions that were
played in 1945-46.
Jack Rollin is the editor of the Sky Sports Yearbook. He is the author of many authoritative books on football
history including “Soccer at War”. Tony
Brown is an author and publisher whose titles include a complete record of the
FA Cup and Football League Players’ Records 1888 to 1939.
