Jump to navigation Jump to search

The 2012–13 season is the 45th season of the Northern Premier League Premier Division, and the sixth season of the Northern Premier League Division One North and South. The League sponsors for 2012–13 are Evo-Stik.[1]

Due to Step Three leagues increasing their number of teams from 22 to 24 from the 2013–14 season onwards, only two teams will be relegated from the Premier Division, and only one team will be relegated from each of Division One North and South this season.[2]

Semi-finals[edit]

The four clubs to have made it through the quarter finals were entered into the semi-finals draw. The draw for the semi-finals took place on 21 March 2013, with Cammell Laird from the Northern Premier League Division One North remaining as the lowest-placed team still in the Cup.[14] Witton Albion was removed from the semi-finals due to fielding an ineligible player on 19 February 2013 against F.C. United of Manchester since the player had already represented Curzon Ashton in a previous round on 27 November 2012. Curzon Ashton was reinstated to play Matlock Town in place of Witton Albion in the semi-finals.[15]
