Dutch Competition

In the First Division West I competition De Volewijckers and Ajax with a large gap with the rest battled together for the division championship. The matches between them ended in two draws and in the other matches Ajax did a bit better than De Volewijckers. Partly because Ajax lost a match after the championship was already won, the difference with De Volewijckers was only 1 point. In the champions competition Ajax lost the first three away matches and even though the rest of the matches were won, this was not enough to become the new domestic champion. HFC Haarlem became the new champion, 1 point ahead of Ajax.

Beker

After the competition had started there was no time anymore for the Dutch Cup. Ajax won their group.

Lineup

The following players were used a lot: Gerrit Keizer (goalkeeper), Jan Potharst and Henk van der Linden (defense), Joop Stoffelen, Jany van der Veen and Piet Leemhuis (midfield and stopper spil), Gerrit Fischer, Joop Korndorffer, Rinus Michels, Ge van Dijk, and Guus Dräger (attack). Gerrit Keizer was captain. Partly bcause of injuries there were quite some changes during the season. Theo Brokmann Jr. (7) fell away early in the season. Following there were some experiments on the center forward position, amongst others with Joop Grigoleit (3) and Han Lambregts (4). Rinus Michels played for the first time one match before the end of the division championship, but played every match since. The following players also played official matches: Gerrie Stroker (17), Ko Loois (11), Henk Blomvliet (10), Tjeerd Aukema (5), Chris Ackerman (4), Wim Geerking (3), Gerrit Gischler (3) and Maurits Boonstoppel (2).

Coach

Jack Reynolds was back in the Netherlands and before the First Division competition started he took over from Dolf van Kol as trainer.

Little Information

There is not a lot of information about lineups and goalscorers. From few matches we dont have any information besides the final score. Besides that it is clear Brokmann, Van der Veen (voetbalknie) and Korndorffer (broken ankle) missed part of the season due to injuries, but it is unknown exactly from when to when.
