Following a solid start to the new season - only one defeat in 7 league outings during August; Slough Town FC consolidated thisencouraging start during September. Two single-goal defeats early in the month on the Dorset coast (2 - 3 at Weymouth, then 1 - 2 at Poole Town) were offset by two victories to end the month ( 4 - 1 at home to Bideford AFC and 2 - 1 away to Truro City) - the Rebels showing their character by overcoming half-time deficits in both these games.
Sandwiched between these league encounters was a disappointing first hurdle exit from the F.A. Cup, losing at home to Ardley United (Hellenic Premier) 1 - 2. A disappointment shared by ten other Southern Premier teams, including five others among the 'top ten'. Slough's victors being somewhat cruelly eliminated from the competition in the next round at Chippenham when their hosts, uncharitibly, scored the only goal of the game in the 89th minute.
October will see the Rebels mainly on their travels - playing seven league fixtures (five away from home) plus two cup ties - county and league cups - also away from home. The two home fixtures being on Saturday 11th October against Redditch United (k.o 15h00) and Tuesday 21st October against Hereford United (k.o. 19h45).
