Lynn had no "A" team this season despite finishing runners-up in the Peterborough League the previous season but withdrew 
as a "question of expense" Lynn "A" applied to the NW Norfolk League but were not admitted as they were outside its 15 mile limit.
Lynn had Eire Internationals Murray and Hartnett playing for them whilst M.McIllwain, a 27 year old inside forward/wing half was 
recruited from Bolton Wanderers - he was previously with Ayr but was signed by Bolton for £6,000.
G Smith returned to Lynn from Crittalls Athletic - he had been with Lynn between 1951-53 as full-time coach.

Lynn were drawn away to Chatteris in the FA Cup but the tie was switched to The Walks 
as Chatteris couldn't cope with the anticipated crowd.
