Eddie, I think leatherjackets may be the the cause. They make their presence felt from September onwards.
my lawn suffered badly every year until I applied a lawn grub killer and this was very effective ...my lawn remainjng green and healthy. However, this chemical has now been banned so I used nematodes this year to great effect. Too late for this year now but try it next September.
are birds...crows, etc., ....pecking at your grass? A good imdication of nasties in your lawn
in spring reseed bare patches and feed to recover your lawn
