Notes:
The War League North competition was run on the same basis as the previous season, Chester finished 24th out of the 38 clubs. The War League Championship was run in a similar manner, but was nationwide. Of 51 clubs, Chester finished 21st. A qualifying competition for the (nationwide) War League Cup was also run on similar lines, with Chester finishing 30th out of 51. As one of the top 32 clubs they progressed to the competition proper.
