The final game of the season was an anticlimax. A full strength team was ready to take on Nottingham in a crucial relegation battle. Relegation was avoided, but the points were secured because Nottingham failed to raise a team and conceded the game.
In a division of only eight teams there were a mere 12 league games, after two matches were conceded, one to Mellor.
Stops retain a nucleus of keen players, and it is hoped that next season may herald a more satisfying league structure.
