They finished runners-up in the 18-team league, so were promoted to the First Division for 1901–02. They also took part in the 1900–01 FA Cup, entering at the first round proper and losing in the third round to Aston Villa after a replay. In locally organised competition, they lost to West Bromwich Albion in the first round of the Birmingham Senior Cup<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> and to Aston Villa in the semi-final of the Lord Mayor of Birmingham's Charity Cup.<ref>"Birmingham Charity Cup. Semi-Final Ties". Birmingham Daily Post. 18 September 1900. p. 8.</ref>

Twenty-three players made at least one appearance in nationally organised first-team competition, and there were thirteen different goalscorers. Full-back Arthur Archer and half-back Walter Wigmore were ever-present over the 39-match season; goalkeeper Nat Robinson and forward Sid Wharton each missed only one match. Bob McRoberts was leading scorer with 24 goals, of which 19 came in the league.
