New manager Roy Little signed many players for the club, but many of them left soon afterwards. Stewart Imlach, for example, came in January, and asked for a transfer eleven days later. We struggled along in mid-table, and finding scoring goals very difficult meant that we finished nearer the bottom than the top.

Merthyr Tydfil's goalkeeper drops on a low cross to foil Harry Easton (white shirt, left), and Harry Obeney (white shirt, right). Obeney, however, scored the only goal of the game to inflict Merthyr's first defeat of the season, in this game played at Crabble on Saturday, 7th.November, 1964.
