The 1937/38 Season

 

As in previous seasons the Reserves played in Division 1 of the  Peterborough League and this season finished as runners up. The final League Table indicates that many teams did not fulfil their fixtures and there is a discrepancy as the number of wins does not equal the number of loses. Also player statistics for this season are incomplete.
