They finished in fourth position in the 22-team 1992–93 Football League Third Division, qualifying for the play-offs, and were successful in the final, beating Crewe Alexandra in a penalty shoot-out to gain promotion to the Football League Second Division.

They lost in the first rounds in both the 1992–93 FA Cup and Football League Cup, being knocked out by Stockport County and Chesterfield respectively, and failed to progress past the preliminary round of the Associate Members' Cup.

20 players made at least one appearance in nationally organised first-team competition, and there were 11 different goalscorers. Defenders Wayne Hall and Andy McMillan and midfielder Jon McCarthy played in all 50 first-team matches over the season. Paul Barnes finished as leading goalscorer with 21 goals, all scored in the league. The winner of the Clubman of the Year award was Paul Stancliffe.
