Fixtures ...

2nd year running No increase on Season Ticket prices

The close season was chiefly notable for two things: firstly, the big increase in the rate of Entertainment Tax on sport; and secondly, for the fact that it was the "deadest" ever so far as the Transfer Market was concerned. With the exception of the same old half-dozen or so, all Clubs were facing very weighty financial problems, with the result that transfers were much more difficult to negotiate.

The new rate of Entertainment Tax of course meant increase admission charges.
