1941–42 in English football
Between 1939 and 1946 normal competitive football was suspended in England. Many footballers signed up to fight in the war and as a result many teams were depleted, and fielded guest players instead. The Football League and FA Cup were suspended and in their place regional league competitions were set up. Appearances in these tournaments do not count in players' official records.
League competition was split into two regional leagues, North and South. However the London clubs organised their own competitions. Many fixtures were unfulfilled and winners were decided on point average rather than total.
|League North||Blackpool (First Championship)
Manchester United (Second Championship)
|League South||Leicester City|
|Football League War Cup||Wolverhampton Wanderers|
|London War Cup||Brentford|
