1942–43 in English football
Between 1939 and 1946 normal competitive football was suspended in England. Many footballers signed up to fight in the war and as a result many teams were depleted, and fielded guest players instead. The Football League and FA Cup were suspended and in their place regional league competitions were set up. Appearances in these tournaments do not count in players' official records.
League competition was split into three regional leagues, North, South and West.
|League West||Lovells Athletic|
|League North Cup||Manchester City|
|Football League War Cup|
|Lancashire War Cup||Manchester United|
