Arsenal won the 1952/53 Football League Division 1 season however it was the closest finish in English football League history, with Preston North End finishing the season with an almost identical record, Division One being decided on Goal average. It would take a brave gambling man to place a football bet on this ever being repeated. Arsenal would not win the League again until the 1970-71 English Football League Division 1 season (view Arsenal league stats). This was the closest Preston North End had come to winning one of the major competitions in England after being crowned the 1938 English Football Association Cup winners.

One club man Bolton Wanders all time great Nat Lofthouse was awarded 1952-1953 Football Writers Association player of the year. Lofthouse had an extraordinary goal scoring record for both Bolton Wanders and the England National team whom he scored for thirty times despite only winning 33 caps. The leading goal scorer in the English League 1952-53 division 1 was Charlie Wayman of Preston North End. A cruel twist of fate meant that Wayman also missed out on the 1949/50 English League Division Two title with Southampton. His forward partnership for Preston North End with the great Tom Finney is still considered to be one of the most feared forward lines in English League history. Charlie Wayward was also part of the team that holds England's Football League highest score record when Newcastle United beat Newport 13-0 with Wayward contributing 4 goals to this record statistic despite missing an early penalty.
