Season in Brief

Any thoughts that a drop in level would mean better results were quickly dispelled as the Saints struggled to come to terms with a return to Division Two. 20th in October, it would be January before they reached mid-table and in the end 13th was as much as they deserved.

The main highlight of the season was the Texaco Cup run which included a memorable wins, away (3-1) and home (2-0), over Glasgow Rangers.
