Review[edit]

Town didn't have the best start in their second season back in Division 2. By mid-October, Town were second bottom, following only winning one of their first 9 league games. But, a stunning turn in form saw Town go on a run of 9 games unbeaten, of which 8 of those were wins, helped by goals from Mark Lillis and Dale Tempest. That run saw Town climb to 9th in early December.

Following that run, Town lost 5 of the next 7, winning the other 2, but then a run of 9 games unbeaten seemed to try to force Town into a late promotion surge, but this was quickly ended by a dreadful late season run, which saw Town lose 6 of their last 8 games, finishing in a mediocre 13th place.
