The 1934/35 Season

 

The first season in the club’s existence the Reserves played in Division 1 of the  Peterborough League. The Division initially consisted of 14 teams, however, Spalding Utd withdrew from the League. Unfortunately the only League Table available omitted Wisbech Town Reserves from the table so only shows 12 teams, however the fact that teams played 24 games means the Division consisted of 13 teams.
