Our poor form continued from last season, and with many comings and goings, we had a very unsettled side. Roy Little was sacked at the end of January, and new manager Jack Clover, who had been a Regimental Sergeant-Major in the Grenadier Guards, certainly instilled some discipline, and the team went unbeaten for his first twelve games in charge. However, a poor run at the end of the season saw us drop down again to finish fifteenth.

Harry Easton's shot from point-blank range is saved by the Barry Town goalkeeper. We were already 6-0 ahead, and that was the result at Crabble on Saturday, 19th.March, 1966.
