* In the records of Yearbooks after 1927, the second place is give as a tie between PLA and St Helen's Court. It is not clear why Bowrings was not credited.
** It was not until the 1933-34 season that game points were used to separate the relative positions of teams finishing with the same number of match points. Up until then, teams finishing with the same number of match points were declared equal, and appeared in the table in alphabetical order (usually) - this convention has been preserved in these tables. Where a promotion or relegation position was a stake, a play-off was arranged, a practice that continued until 1994.
