Distinctions "Joe Payne, a practically unknown player, scored ten goals for Luton Town, who beat Bristol Rovers 12-nil, and so set up a new individual goalscoring record for the English Football League. Originally, Payne, was credited with nine goals, but after the match, the referee said that Luton's sixth goal, which had been given to Martin, belonged to Payne, as the ball was already over the line when Martin charged the goalkeeper. In this way, Payne surpassed the feat of R. Bell, now of Everton, who only last Boxing Day (1935), scored nine goals for Tranmere Rovers in their 13-4 win over Oldham Athletic. It was Payne's fourth appearance in first class football."
