1929–30 Birmingham F.C. season

The 1929–30 Football League season was Birmingham Football Club's 34th in the Football League and their 17th in the First Division. They finished in 11th position in the 22-team division. They also competed in the 1929–30 FA Cup, entering at the third round proper and losing to Arsenal in the fourth after a replay.

Twenty-five players made at least one appearance in nationally organised competition, and there were thirteen different goalscorers. Forwards Johnny Crosbie and George Hicks played in 42 of the 45 matches over the season, and Joe Bradford was leading scorer for the ninth successive year, with 23 goals, all scored in the league.

Off the field, the Yorkshire Post reported that "The annual statement of accounts of the Birmingham F.C. shows a profit on last season's working of £1,412, a pleasant change from the previous season, when the club declared a loss of nearly £7,300. Gross receipts show a considerable increase, totalling nearly £40,000, the attendances being better throughout the season."

1929–30 Southampton F.C. season

The 1929–30 season was the 35th season of competitive football by Southampton, and the club's eighth in the Second Division of the Football League. After finishing fourth in the Second Division the previous season – their highest position in the league to date – Southampton continued their efforts towards achieving promotion to the First Division, but finished three places lower in seventh. The club struggled at the beginning of the league campaign, remaining in the bottom half of the table due to a run of poor results. A period of form including six wins in eight games followed between September and November, enabling the Saints to move up as high as third place. The team remained in the top half of the Second Division table for most of the rest of the season, finishing in seventh place with 17 wins, 11 draws and 14 losses.

In the 1929–30 FA Cup, Southampton entered in the third round away to divisional rivals Bradford City, losing 4–1 to face elimination at the first hurdle for the third consecutive season (their worst run in the season since being knocked out of the first round in 1912, 1913 and 1914). The club ended their season as usual with two fixtures against local rivals Portsmouth, for the Hampshire Benevolent Cup and the Rowland Hospital Cup. The former (played at Fratton Park) ended in a goalless draw, while the latter (played at The Dell) ended in a 2–0 win for the travelling Pompey side. The Saints also played five friendly matches during the 1929–30 season, drawing with Aldershot Town in September, beating Corinthian in February, and drawing with a Salisbury District XI, beating Andover and losing to a Royal Air Force side in April.

Southampton used 28 different players during the 1929–30 season and had thirteen different goalscorers. Their top scorer was centre-forward Dick Rowley, who scored 25 goals in 25 appearances in the Second Division, and the club's only goal in the FA Cup. Willie Haines, the club's top scorer the previous season, ranked second with 15 goals in the league, followed by Johnny Arnold on seven league goals. Nine players were signed by the club during the campaign, with eight released and sold to other clubs. The average attendance at The Dell during the 1929–30 season was 12,786. The highest attendance was 25,934 against Tottenham Hotspur on Boxing Day 1929, which surpassed the last season's new league record of 24,247. The lowest attendance of the season was 4,881 against Millwall on 3 March 1930.
