Five minutes before the end of their FA Cup tie against Maidstone United, Charlton team-mates Derek Hales and Mike Flanagan were sent off - for fighting each other!

A post-war low League attendance at St James' Park of 7,152 were present at the Newcastle v Wrexham match in March. But it got worse - the match was abandoned at half time because of rain and when the fixture was restaged in May only 7,134 turned up!
