Season in Brief

Any thoughts of a season of post-promotion consolidation were quickly dispelled and the Saints final position was their lowest of the campaign. The South coast derby that produced the biggest crowd of the season was the first since World War II but wouldn't be repeated in the subsequent season as Pompey were relegated.

Saints, meanwhile, proved to themselves and others that this was a Division they could comfortably deal with and that the ultimate promotion could now be a realistic target
