Summary

Having spent heavily in the previous season United's investment was more circumspect with only one big money signing: another Scot, outside-right Jimmy Low.

The Magpies made a reasonable start and at the end of October were well placed in fourth but in the next nine games they lost five and drew four.

They tumbled down into mid-tabe and never really recovered until a four game winning streak at the end took them back up to seventh.

Newcastle disappointed in the FA Cup again, losing 3-1 at Preston in the Second Round.

Jimmy Lawrence played his 507th and last game in April before leaving for South Shields as manager. He retains United's all-time appearance record to this day.
