Appearances and Goals
<< 1915-16 (Click for: Final League Tables back to Everton's Results) 1917-18 >>
The normal Football League and FA Cup competitions were suspended at the end of the 1914/15 season due to World War I.
The Football League was replaced with regional leagues - a Lancashire Section and a Midlands Section.
In 1916/17 Everton played in the Lancashire Section Principal Tournament up until March 24 1917.
After that date they competed in a further Lancashire Section Subsidiary Tournament - which itself was
sub-regionalised into 4 Groups, with Everton in Group B.
The 4 final Group tables were amalgamated to give a combined Final Table for the Subsidiary Tournament.
In 1916/17 London and Southern League clubs formed their own 'London Combination'.
The FA Cup was not replaced and no Cup competitions were contested.
