The Football Conference season of 1990–91 (known as the GM Vauxhall Conference for sponsorship reasons) was the twelfth season of the Football Conference.

Overview[edit]

Barnet finished the season as Conference champions and were promoted to the Football League Fourth Division, finishing narrowly ahead of Colchester United, who had been relegated to the Conference a year earlier.

There was no relegation from the Fourth Division to the Conference this year, due to expansion of the Football League.
