OTHER NOTABLE EVENTS TODAY
1947 - The Reserves were due to meet Wisbech at Layer Road with a 3.15 kick-off in a friendly. However, the visitors team bus broke down at Bury St Edmunds, and they had to find alternative transport. With no sign of them after three-quarters of an hour, and having seen the first teams game at Gloucester postponed the previous day due to a waterlogged pitch, manager Ted Fenton organised for two United scratch teams to play each - one captain by Fenton, and the other by Arthur Turner - for ten minutes Wisbech eventually arrived and the game kicked-off a 4-15 to be 35 minutes each way. United probably regretted that as despite first team players Wright, Hodgson, Hillman and Turner, they lost 7-2!
