Summary

and reproduced by kind permission.

There were no big name signings during the summer and this gave an opportunity to some local lads from the juniors such as Bradley and Roxborough to break into the first team.

Another creditable finish (4th) was largely due to United's strength in defence. But although they had the third best defence only three teams scored less. A defensive/offside stranglehold - instigated by United and McCracken - was enveloping the game.

There was a shock in the Cup as Second Division Southampton emerged victorious after a replay.

With the depression taking hold the average attendance had slumped to less than 27,000; a drop of almost 15,000 in two years.
