Dutch Competition

In the First Division West I Ajax started strong and from the start Ajax was the favorite for the division championship. Although not all games were very impressive the division championship, partly due to two wins from the number two Stormvogels, always stayed within reach. In the champions competition Ajax finished third after new domestic champion Heracles and NAC, just ahead of Feyenoord.

Beker

As First Division club Ajax could skip the first two rounds of the Dutch Cup. In the third round Enschedese Boys eliminated Ajax.

Lineup

Ajax often played with the following lineup: Jan de Boer (goalkeeper), Henk Anderiesen and Dolf van Kol (defense), Theo Schetters, Wim Anderiesen Sr., and Joop Martens (midfield and stopper spil), Eddy Hamel, Wim Volkers, Henk Hordijk, Wout Iseger, and Henk Twelker (attack). Joop Martens was captain. Especially for the right back and attack there were some changes. At the start Cor de Vlieger (11) was rightback, later Henk Anderiesen took his position and Theo Schetters took his place on midfield. Later again Frans Couton (7) played as back and Henk Anderiesen went back to midfield. At the start of the season a lineup was published with Frans Rutte as central striker, but he only appeared in a few friendlies. Henk Hordijk became the central striker and at the end he seemed to have lost his position to Wim Ingenbleek (5). Furthermore the following played played in official matches: Cor Jurriaans (4), Bob ten Have (3), André de Kruijff (2), Wim Hangard (1) and Ad Wheeler (1).

Coach

Halfway the season Sid Castle replaced Harold Rose as trainer of Ajax.

General Meeting

During the general meeting July 22 1926 the board was composed as follows: president Frans Schoevaart, 2nd president Maarten Smit, 1st secretary J.J. Grootmeijer, 2nd secretary M.J. Koolhaas, 1st treasurer J. Oudheusden, 2nd treasurer J. Schoevaart. Committee members Wim de Bois, F. Couton, and S. Tump. J.J Grootmeijer indicated he wanted to quit his function as secretary, during a meeting on December 29 M.J. Koolhaas was named as the new secretary. Unknown who (if anyone) took over the function of 2nd secretary.

Protection Goalkeepers

A number of goalkeepers in the Dutch competition started an initiative to protect goalkeepers more. Main target was to have a change in the rules so that it would no longer be allowed to attack a goalkeeper that was not standing (e.g. sitting or lying on the ground).

England Trip

Ajax made, while the championscompetition was still ongoing, a trip to England to visit and play matches.
