    "Spennymore" should read Spennymoor.

    The first match seen is indeed West Ham v Bolton. The game was a 3rd Round FA Cup match, played on 16 January 1937, and ended 0-0.

    The second game is another 3rd Round game, played on the same day, between West Bromwich Albion and Spennymoor United. West Brom won 7-1.

    It's interesting if all of the paperwork from the time seemed to say "Spennymore". Perhaps the author wasn't much of a football fan. We've corrected this now.
