(1) Played at Folkestone; replay of last season's final.                    
(2) Match to be replayed; Dover fielded ineligible players.                    
                   
                   
                   
                   
                                       

We had a moderate first half to the season, and even after the long winter break we were not in very good form, to say the least. However, a good run in April saw us with a good chance of promotion, until defeats by King's Lynn and Margate saw us knocked back. Another good run still gave us an outside chance, but a penalty seven minutes from the end by Nuneaton meant we lost a vital point in our last match of the season and we finished sixth. We did actually win more games than the champions, Margate!
