Many thanks are again due to my contributors for reporting the mistakes. Readers’ comments are always welcome since (alas!) there are certainly more mistakes waiting to be found. I have chosen to correct the known errors when a particular volume needs reprinting. Therefore please see which edition you have by looking at the publication date on the second page of each book. Amendments to a later edition also apply to earlier ones unless otherwise noted.
1888/89 to 1892/93 (2007)
1888/89 Aston Villa: Green scored 3 in game 4; there was no own goal. Change the totals.
1888/89 Burnley: the og in game 13 is credited to Horne of Accrington
1889/90 Blackburn Rovers: there are 4 unknown goals, not three
1889/90 Burnley: Kaye played in goal game 17, not Cox. Haresnape scored 2 in game 18; delete Stewart and amend goal totals. The og scorer in game 13 was Fletcher.
1890/91 Burnley: Hill scored in game 6 – add 1 to his goal total. In game 8, the scorer was Mason (og). The scorer’s name in game 9 should be McLardie, not McLarsie.
1891/92 Wolves: the scorer in the FA Cup R1 is Devey not Davey
1892/93 Bootle: The line-up for the Q2 cup tie was the same as that for Q1. Scorers were Stewart, Montgomery and the attendance 3000.

1898/99 Grimsby: the og in game 12 was scored by Edmondson. The og in game 30 should be awarded to Cockshutt, making his total 17.
1898/99 Sheffield Wednesday. The line-ups shown against games 16 to 29 are actually those for games 15 to 28. In game 29, the line-up is as shown (i.e. the same as the ‘new’ game 28) but Davis was 9, Pryce 8 and Richards did not play. The changes to the line-up for the last ten minutes of the Aston Villa game played on March 13th are Langley at 3 (not Layton), Ferrier at 4 (not Ruddleston; however Ruddleston played at 6, not Jamieson), Bosworth at 7 (not Dryburgh) Richards at 8 (not Davis) and Price 9 (not Hemmingfield). The last goal scorer on March 13 was Spiksley, not Richards (amend the goal totals). Given that an appearance in both Villa games should count as “one”, make the following changes to the appearance totals: Bosworth 7, Ferrier 33, Langley 24, Pryce 8, Richards 3.

Sunderland 1904/05. 5 columns are wrongly headed because Talbot-Lewis is out of position. Talbot-Lewis details should be in the column headed McCullum; the names McCullum, Rhodes, Rowlandson and Stewart should be moved one to the right. The appearance totals will then be OK, but Rhodes’ goal total (1) should be moved one to the right.
1911/12 & 1912/13 (2010)
Glossop 1911/12: They were 18th in Division Two, not Division One

The letter gentleman was often known by his middle name Potter, sometimes as “Potter Smith”, which explains his incorrect appearance in the grid as Potter T. Also, SJ Webb did not play in goal in game 42 and his appearance total should be 41.
Merthyr: In game 4, Creighton was 3 not Scott, and TH Williams was 10 not Fletcher. In game 8, TH Williams was 2 not Cross.

Plymouth: Game 21: Leslie played at 10, not Vidler. In game 42, Vidler played at 10, not Leslie, making the appearance totals correct.

RA Still (in the footnote) played at 3 in game 19, not 18. Delete Baines and Bateman’s appearances in game 19. In game 2, Bossons was 3 and Hill 7; delete Franklin and Harrigan from this game.
