Abstract: This paper proves the following theorem:

Theorem 1. Let $ \bar G$ be a finite primitive complex projective group of degree n with a Sylow p-subgroup $ \bar P$ of order greater than p for p prime greater than five. Let $ n \ne p,n < 4p/3$, and if $ p = 7,n \leqslant 8$. Then $ p \equiv 1 \pmod 4,\bar P$ is a trivial intersection set, and for some nonidentity element $ \bar x\;in\;\bar G,C(\bar x)$ does not have a normal Sylow p-subgroup.
