Notes

At a conference in Liverpool on 7 January 1931 of the four national associations and the Football League, the following concessions was agreed:-
     All International matches, apart from those between England and Scotland, in which the services of a League player would be required, would have to be played before the 14 December each year.
     Any national association wishing to select a Football League player who was registered with a different association would have to apply for clearance from the Management Committee twenty-one days in advance. This applied, for example, if Scotland wished to pick a man based in England, or Ireland wished to pick a Welsh club's player. The Football League retained the right to refuse permission if the player was needed for an important League match.
    All League players taking part in international matches had to be properly insured by the national association.
    If a national association selected a League player for a Saturday international, it would have to pay the player's wages for that week.
This was accepted unanimously by the clubs in March 1931.
