It had been decided in light of the war to suspend the regular competition and that play would become amateur for the rest of the war and played in an unofficial capacity. A large number of "war workers, service men and wounded soldiers" attended games on this opening day but many teams were now struggling to get enough players with enlistment taking place. Broughton had done well to be 3-3 at half time in this match but they fell away after half time.
