WHAT HAPPENED
Three initial leagues were in place this year.
A London league ran for 30 games, while separate Southern and Northern divisions ran until Christmas (Forest were in the Southern Division). These two separate Northern and Southern leagues were then combined for another full, combined league for the rest of the season.

Also competed for was a Wartime Cup to replace the FA Cup. The first nine Combined League games were also qualifying games for the cup, and the top 32 cubs qualified for the knockout rounds...Forest qualified in 8th.
Note: Cup qualifying was based on Points Average over 10 games, with points adjusted up for those teams who only played 9!
