During the final week of September, Arsenal’s first team played one league game and a charity match whilst the reserves also played a league game. There was also an interesting appointment to the Football League Management Committee.

Woolwich Arsenal played host to Newcastle United this week. Newcastle had started the season well and were only one point off the leading clubs.
The Reds made four changes to the previous game: Crawford, Shaw and Thomson returned after missing one game whilst Flanagan had missed two. Randall and Winship were injured, and it was rumoured that Sands was carrying an injury which was why he was rested for the game against Clapton Orient.
