On Saturday September 16th 1972 at the Arsenal v Liverpool fixture football personality Jimmy Hill stepped in to prevent the match being abandoned when he took over as a substitute linesman. The original linesman, Dennis Drewitt, suffered torn knee ligaments in the first half and was unable to continue. An announcement was made to the crowd for a qualified referee to take over on the line and up stepped Jimmy Hill who had been at the match as a spectator.

In the 1-1 draw between Wolves and Newcastle on February 17th 1973 Kenny Hibbitt scored for Wolves and his brother Terry scored the equaliser for Newcastle.
