The side finished second in the championship but 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.
