I'm pleased to announce that I have a response from the Football League, but unfortunately no further information,
Thank you for your email. Although I am not able to answer you questions directly, I would point you in the direction of two organisations that have close historical ties to the Football League:
The National Football Museum, Preston – has a significant amount of historical material on loan from the FL – 01772 908 442.
Lancashire Record Office, Preston – recently took possession of our national archive which, it is hoped, will be available to the public this summer - 01772 533 039.
I would hope that the information you seek is available from one of these sources.

The quest for more details hasn't ended, but the answer is seemingly lost in time.
Keep your eyes on this space.
