Season 1999-2000

Prior to the start of the 1999/2000 season, the Maunsell Premier Cup was again captured at the expense of Northampton Town. The Club were made favourites for the Conference title, with signings such as Billy Turley and Mark Peters, and were always in the upper reaches of the table. Optimism was high at the end of February when leading the table, with a run of home games to follow. However, only two of these were won, and defeat against the eventual champions Kidderminster Harriers at Aggborough effectively decided the season, and runners-up spot had to suffice.

Another successful FA Cup run again culminated in a Third Round Proper exit on penalties in a Nene Park replay against Sheffield United, following an excellent 1-1 draw at Bramall Lane. Disappointment came in the quarter finals of the FA Trophy with a shock reversal in a home replay against Sutton United.
