During the early years of the decade, Nea Salamina was strong in home games but weak away.[1]​ Noteworthy is the conquest of the amateur championship from farm team the period 1960–61,[1]​ The games of the farm team gathered the same interest with the main team among fans, who enthusiastically celebrated winning the title.[1]​ During this period the nucleus for a successful team was created, including Kyriakos Koureas (who later played for Olympiacos Fútbol Club).[2]​ In December 1963, the league disbanded; at that time, Nea Salamina was in a tight three-way race with Omonia and APOEL.[3]​ With the creation of Guardia Nacional de Chipre, many Nea Salamina's players joined the army; players would often come straight from camps throughout Cyprus to play league games with no training.[4]

 
Nea Salamina Famagusta at 1965-1966

The 1965/66 season was one of the best (but painful) periods for Nea Salamina; the team arguably played the best football in Cyprus.[5]​ The team contended for the championship until the last game of the season and lose its first cup final.[5]​ In a game against APOEL at the old GSP stadium, Nea Salamina was leading 3–0. In the 62nd minute, an APOEL player hit a Nea Salamina's player; an APOEL grabbed and hid a linesman's flag. The game was halted, and the CFA ordered a rematch. The dispute lasted more than three weeks; in the meantime Nea Salamina was defeated by the bottommost team, Aris Limassol FC.[6]​ In the penultimate match of the tournament Omonia and Salamina were tied for first place on points, and Olympiacos was one point behind.[7]​ In the game against Olympiakos Nicosia FC Nea Salamina was leading 2–1, but Olympiakos tied the game in allegedly excessive extra time.[8][8]​ After clashes in the last few seconds, the game was halted and ordered replayed.[8]​ Omonia was in first place with 50 points; Nea Salamina was second with 47 and Olympiakos third with 46. With a victory over Olympiakos Nea Salamina would won the championship, since it had more goals than Omonia. On 31 May 1966 many buses and cars drove from Famagusta to Nicosia, where Nea Salamina was defeated 6–3.[7][8]​ The best defense in the league, which had allowed fifteen goals in nineteen games, allowed six in one game.[7]​ For a second time, Nea Salamina finished third. This defeat affected team morale in the cup final with rival Apollon Limassol; although it was favored, the team lost 4–2.[7][9]​ During this period Salamina had the best defense in the league, with 21 goals in 20 games (a team record).[8]

Near the end of the 1966/67 season the board of Olympiakos reported rumors of future match-fixing between Nea Salamina and Anorthosis to the team, which its president denied. Nea Salamina defeated Anorthosis; Olympiacos won the league championship, despite its defeat by Omonia.[10]​ The Olympiakos board apologized, congratulating Nea Salamina on its victory.[11]​ By the end of the decade Nea Salamina was finishing mid-table, despite an outflow of players to other teams or the army.[12]
