Review[edit]

After a resurgence in form in the last few seasons, Town's form continued its upturn in form. 5 of their players, Wilf Bott, Charlie Luke, Dave Mangnall, George McLean and Jack Smith all scored more than 10 goals during the season, helping Town become the top goalscorers in the league during the season. They were still in the title race until a defeat by Arsenal at Highbury in April. They would finish 2nd, just 3 points behind the Gunners, although if they had beaten them, then they would have won the title by a point.
