Season in Brief

This was a disappointing season despite the club staying in the top three from late November onwards. Promotion was always just out of reach for the Saints, probably due in large part to ten defeats on their travels.

Once again an early FA Cup exit didn't do anything to help the club's finances, where falling numbers through the turnstiles were a cause for concern.
