It turned out to be a momentous season for the Robins who, despite finishing outside of the promotion places, went up thanks to an indiscretion by Darwen.
A record number of hat-tricks were scored-7.
A record transfer fee was received-£20,000 for the irrepressible Matt Derbyshire who ran amok during the early months of the campaign.
Harwood reached their first final since the glory days of Eric Whalley.
Has a team ever lost a game 7-0 yet won the next 6-0?
Had it not been for a bad injury suffered by legend John Eastham in the 2-2 home draw with Ashton Town in October, or the transfer of Matt to the Rovers, then the Robins would, almost certainly, have ‘swept the board’.
The Showground witnessed what was arguably the most exciting game ever played there, a 7-6 defeat by Holker Old Boys.
