Dutch Competition

In the new competition setup Ajax was placed in a group with mainly eastern teams. Ajax was not able to play a significant role and ended as the number 8 8 points from the division champion DWS. In the champions competition DWS became second behind the new domestic champion PSV.

Beker

There was no Dutch Cup competition during this season.

Lineup

The following players were used a lot: Jan van Drecht (goalkeeper), Jan Potharst and Ger van Mourik (defense), Cor van der Hoeven, Co Bouwens en Joop Stoffelen (midfield and stopper spil), Theo Brokmann Jr., Rinus Michels, Gerard Bruins, Ge van Dijk, and Guus Dräger (attack). Probably Potharst became captain after Stoffelen left. This was a season during which many different players were used, partly Ajax still made use of the older players, but partly also new and young players were tried. Next to Ger van Mourik also Wim Anderiesen Jr. (5) played his first matches for Ajax. The following players also played official matches: Jan Looyen (8), Ger Beumer (7), Wim Focken (7), Leen Bartels (6), Jansen (6), Gerrit Krist (6), Hans Boskamp (5), Ad van de Pol (5), Theo de Groot (4), Jan Los (4), Henk Sonnevelt (4), Arend van der Wel (4), Karel Blitz (3), Bab Fritz (3), Wim Rozeboom (3), Jan Vinck (3), Wim Huis (1), Remi Rosendahl (1) and Chris Schoonenberg (1).

Coach

When Ajax was without a trainer at the start of the season, Jack Reynolds returned temporarily. In November Robert Thomson took over.

Professionalism

This was the first season that Ajax was confronted with loosing its best players to a foreign competition. The Dutch soccer association still tried to stop professional soccer, but individual players choose to be paid for performing their hobby. For Ajax it was Cor van der Hart, who left Ajax before the start of the season to play in France, and Joop Stoffelen, who followed to France halfway through the season.
