- *Chelsea were required to play their League match at home to Burnley on the same day as their FA Cup 3rd Qualifying Round trip to Crystal Palace. The first team beat Burnley in the League but the reserves (who competed in the South Eastern League) were thrashed 7-1 at Crystal Palace (who were to win the Second Division of the Southern League in 1905-06). That result is still the record defeat by a League side against a non-league side in the FA Cup.
