Review[edit]

Following the disappointing 16th-place finish the previous season, Jack Chaplin stepped down from the manager's hotseat to be the assistant to the recently retired Town legend Clem Stephenson. The season produced mixed results which varied from a 4-1 win over eventual champions Sheffield Wednesday to the massive 7-1 defeat to Bolton Wanderers on New Year's Day 1930. The season is most noted for the team's FA Cup run, which saw the team reach their 4th final, mainly thanks to the 9 cup goals scored by Alex Jackson. Unfortunately, the final was against an Arsenal side led by Town's managerial legend Herbert Chapman. The Gunners beat the Terriers 2-0 at Wembley to win their first ever title. That wouldn't be the last title they would win under Chapman.
