The 1930 Northern League was the second season of speedway racing in the United Kingdom for Northern British teams. The league was previously known as the English Dirt Track League but the addition of two Scottish teams prompted a name change and 1930 was the inaugural Northern League.

There were many team changes from the previous season. Reigning champions Leeds Lions, Halifax, Salford and Middlesbrough dropped out. Manchester White City, Belle Vue and Warrington renewed their participation having withdrawn partway through the previous season. Edinburgh, Glasgow White City and Wombwell were new entrants. Barnsley, Manchester White City withdrew during the season but their records were not expunged.[1]
