sorry about that

I had a second look and the word "then" may have a assumed "back" which was not written
1/" we had a great team in 1982 (back) then we won the trophy and the league competition"
2/" we had a great team in 1982 then we won the trophy and the league competition"
it shows the statement is referring to a past event

I was sound asleep, then a dog barked, which woke me up.

Turning, then a leap, Jet Li somersaulted over his opponent.

First mix flour with water, then a little salt.

Back then, a dollar was worth more than it is today.

At first I didn't know what to think, then a thought came to me, think of nothing.

That was then, a time of turmoil. This is now, a time of peace.

If you hated me then a kiss from you was unexpected.

If I make dinner now, then a snack later won't be necessary.

The weather will be sunny this morning, then a storm will arrive by this afternoon.

Just when you think you will never understand, then a new piece of information about English causes you confusion, then, a feeling of enlightenment.
