- Player Injury: MillsThe Times notes that "Mills was hurt early on and went out to the right wing; then he partially recovered and went back to his proper position." whilst the Sheffield Independent states "[Mills] was knocked dizzy through a collision in the first ten mintues, played part of the game at outside-right, and 80 minutes of it with one eye practically closed."
- Player Injury: CraystonThe Times: "When the teams came out after half-time Crayston, limping a little and obviously not able to go all out for the ball, was at outside-right and Hall dropped back to right half-back." Sheffiled Independent: "In addition, Crayston fell lame in the first half, and after the interval had to play at outside-right, with Hall at right-halfback. This meant Matthews playing the greater part of the game at inside-right..."
