With the coffers beginning to expand United relaid the pitch, installed a new drainage system and constructed a grass terrace on the Leazes Park side of the ground. St James' could now accomodate 30,000 "with comfort".

The new capacity was only reached once for the home game against Sheffield United and crowds continued to average out at around 16,000

United's great Edwardin team was now starting to take shape and future stalwarts Gardner, Veitch and Carr all made their debut in a season that saw united finish in 5th.
