Manager Brian Jordan was in his third season and was hoping for an improvement on the 8th and 12th place finishers of the last two seasons. They got off to a poor start with just one point from the first four games, but slowly started to climb the league and a run of eight straight wins at the end of the season saw them finish in 7th place, their best position since 1983! Town had disappointing early exits from the FA Vase and the Walsall Senior Cup both after replays, and got past just one round of the Challenge Cup. The Colemen exited the Birmingham Senior Cup at the first hurdle but a 2-1 defeat to Moor Green was no disgrace!
Surprisingly after a steady improvement and a fantastic end of season run, Brian Jordan was not the manager at the start of the next season!
