Football Combination Cup 1946-47 Can't Post or Reply Privately

I am attempting to reconstruct the group tables (dates & results) but a number of results are elusive as
a) the bad weather of February/March caused numerous postponements,

Group 1
Reading v Southampton played 24/05/1947. Score 1-1
Hope this helps
