Election to the Football League[edit]

This year Enfield, the winners of the Alliance Premier League, could not apply for election because they did not meet Football League requirements, so 2nd placed Maidstone United won the right to apply for election to the Football League to replace one of the four bottom sides in the 1982–83 Football League Fourth Division. The vote went as follows:

Club Final Position Votes
Blackpool 21st (Fourth Division) 52
Crewe Alexandra 23rd (Fourth Division) 49
Hereford United 24th (Fourth Division) 49
Hartlepool United 22nd (Fourth Division) 36
Maidstone United 2nd (Alliance Premier League) 26

As a result of this, Maidstone United did not gain membership of the Football League.
