Dutch Competition

Eventhough Ajax used a lot of the same players as in the previous season, which ended reasanobly well, Ajax started again very poorly with the First Division West II competition. In the first 8 matches Ajax was able to win only twice and lost 4 times. From round 9 onwards Ajax won a number of matches in a row, closing the series with a 8-0 win over leader VUC. There were only 3 matches remaining and suddenly Ajax had a realistic change of taking the division championship again. VUC still dropped some points, but because Ajax was able to get only 3 points from the last 3 games, VUC ended first and Ajax became second 2 points behind. In the champions competition VUC ended second behind De Volewijckers.

Beker

In the competition Blauw-Wit had beaten Ajax in the last round, taking away the possibility for Ajax to play a decisive match for the division championship and also in the second round of the Dutch Cup Blauw-Wit was too strong. Ajax had been able to take away a 100% score from the group stage by beating DWS, Zeeburgia, Watergraafsmeer and West Frisia, and SDW was also beaten with a convincing score in the first round.

Lineup

Except for Blomvliet, Schubert and Van Wijngaarden the selection remained the same and also a lot of the same players were used as in the previous season: Gerrit Keizer (goalkeeper), Jan Potharst and Steef Klein (defense), Joop Stoffelen, Jany van der Veen and Ko Loois (midfield and stopper spil), Gerrit Fischer, Harry Pelser, Theo Brokmann Jr., Ge van Dijk, and Guus Dräger (attack). Gerrit Keizer was captain. During the season there was not much change in the compostion of the team, but there were quite some changes in the positions, especially for Steef Klein, Joop Stoffelen, Jany van der Veen and Ko Loois different positions were tried out. The following players also played official matches: Joop Korndorffer (6), Karel Kraamwinkel (4), Wim Geerking (2), Gerrit Gischler (2), Bob de Koning (1) and Piet Weppner (1).

Coach

Dolf van Kol is trainer.

Henk Blomvliet

Henk Blomvliet was deported to Germany at the end of season 1942-43 and because of that was no longer available for Ajax during the remaining years of World War II.
