When we travelled to Leicester Fosse (now City) at Filbert Street for a 2nd division fixture, our debut season as a league club

Our 5th away game, losing 4 with one draw, this game went the same way as the 4 with a 4-1 defeat, John Thomas Lamb scoring our concellation goal

Frank Piercy & Robert Gray, registered No's 22 & 23 respectively, made their debuts
