team notes:

When the team was announced, the right-back position was to be filled by either Portsmouth's Phil Gunter or Bolton Wanderers' John Ball, dependent on Portsmouth's participation in the FA Cup semi-final. Gunter got the nod, however, because of a strained back muscle, Rutter replaced him on 25 March.

Source Notes

"Mr. Tom Whittaker, the Arsenal manager, has accepted an invitation to manage the England 'B' team in their matches with Holland at Amsterdam on March 26, Saarlandischer, in Saarbruecken, on May 18, and France 'B' in France on May 22". - Tuesday, 4 March 1952, The Yorkshire Post and Leeds Mercury.

"The Football Association announce that, in view of Arsenal's F.A. Cup semi-final tie on March 29, they have released Mr Tom Whittaker, their secretary/manager, from his position as manager to the England 'B' team in their match against Holland in Amsterdam three days earlier. Mr R. Ridding of Bolton Wanderers will take his place. Mr Whittaker did not make a request for release, but he was very pleased at the F.A's decision. He will still manage the England 'B' team during their continental tour in May."
- Wednesday, 12 March 1952, The Evening News
