The 1954/55 Season

In the League the Reserves finished in 8th place and in the League Cup were runners up losing a two legged final against Lowestoft Town 5-2 on aggregate.

Although we have the final League Table, fixtures and results, sadly we do not have the player appearances for the 13th April 1955 game against Bury.
