Barnet made an amazing start to their debut season as a Football league club. In their first League match they lost 4-7 at home to Crewe, in their next match they drew 5-5 at home to Brentford in the League Cup and within a couple of weeks they had won 6-0 at Lincoln in the League. Results.

In the FA Cup Rochdale came up against the first Scottish side to reach the competition proper in over a century. They beat Gretna - then in England's Northern League - in a First Round replay.

The FA Cup saw a change in the rules from the First Round onwards with a penalty shoot out replacing second replays. The first such shoot-out took place a Millmoor, Rotherham on Tuesday November 26th 1991 when Rotherham United defeated Scunthorpe United 7-6 on penalties after finishing extra time 3-3 in a First Round replay.
