  • Burtenshaw wrote a book called Whose side are you on, ref?
  • this is from footballreferee.org:

    Referees have experimented with many types of patrol paths (...)
    One of the more peculiar paths was used by Norman Burtenshaw, a top Referee in England (retired in season 1972-3). Later in his career, Burtenshaw adopted a patrol path that resembled a half swastika - down one touchline, across the center of the field of play, and down the other touchline in the other half of the field of play. This enabled Burtenshaw to stay outside of play, and see as much of the game as possible. To run this long patrol path, a Referee would have to be fit and fast. The reason why Burtenshaw used this path was to keep a better eye on increasing 'sneak' fouls where players purposefully obstructed opponents who were making runs into good positions away from the ball. This patrol path (making a comeback with some modern Referees) demonstrates how the different types of patrol paths have changed as the game developed tactically.
  • In October 1967, Burtenshaw got knocked unconscious by Millwall fans storming the field after a match against Aston Villa.
