The committee had 60 applicants to choose their side from, and put together a strong combination that finished second on the ladder. They also won the Stars and Stripes Trophy and five gold watches for scoring the most goals for the season. Their improvement was credited to the training methods of Jim Mitchell and the transfer of a number of players from the struggling Richmond club.
On Wednesday August 9 a match was played under "ancient" rules between teams of old Melbourne and Carlton players.
The club made a profit of 58p, 10s, 1d for the season.
