  Leading League goalscorer:
George Camsell
 (Middlesbrough)
 59  goals

George Camsell's 59 goals (scored in 37 matches and including 9 hat-tricks) was a Football League record for the most League goals scored in a season. It lasted just 12 months  until Dixie Dean scored 60 goals in 1927/28.
(Goals & their goalscorers)

The second promotion spot was settled on goal average, by just .005 of a goal! Manchester City beat Bradford City 8-0 on the last day of the season to finish with a goal average of 1.770 but Portsmouth's 5-1 victory over Preston on the same day gave them an average of 1.775. Despite scoring 108 League goals had Manchester City scored one more goal - or conceded one less - they would have gone up.

Players taking an early bath caused the abandonment of the Oldham v Brentford FA Cup tie - abandoned matches.
