Dover's Kent League Division Two season ended before it even started, but by November the Kent Regional League (Eastern Section) had been organised. Quite a few games were left unplayed, but Shorts Sports, a works team from Strood, won the League easily. The Club also entered the Kent Senior Cup and the Kent Senior Shield. The Reserve side played in the Kent Amateur League (Southern Region).
