The 1970s was the decade in which NEC Nijmegen became an emergent force in the Dutch game. In 1973 the club had reached its first KNVB Final and as the decade progressed was battling to establish itself as Eredivisie regulars.

The 1977-78 season was typical of the club’s status at the time with a season-long battle against relegation by Hans Croon’s side eventually proving successful thanks to a 15th placed finish. The loss of star man Jan Peters during the previous close season had an impact, but new attacking signings Ronald Hendriks and Frans Janssen enjoyed good debut seasons while the promising Frans Thijssen continued his impressive development in midfield.
