Promotion and relegation[edit]

In the twenty-sixth season of the Northern Premier League Marine should have been (as champions) automatically promoted to the Football Conference, but were not as they did not meet the Conference's requirements. Bridlington Town folded at the end of the season, meaning only Fleetwood were relegated to the First Division, while Leek Town moved to the Southern League Premier Division; these three clubs were replaced by relegated Conference side Witton Albion, First Division winners Guiseley and second placed Spennymoor United. Meanwhile, Blyth Spartans and Atherton Laburnum Rovers were admitted into the First Division.

  • Spennymoor United bt. Hyde United
