Midlands 4 East (North) is a level 9 English Rugby Union league and level 4 of the Midlands League, made up of teams from the northern part of the East Midlands region including clubs from Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and the occasional team from Leicestershire, with home and away matches played throughout the season. Each year all clubs in the division also take part in the RFU Junior Vase - a level 9 national competition.

Formed for the 2006-07 season, the division was originally known as Midlands 5 East (North) but changed to its present name for the 2008-09 season due to league restructuring. Promoted teams tend to move up to Midlands 3 East (North). Up until the 2017-18 relegated teams dropped down down to Midlands 5 East (North) but since that division has been abolished there is currently no relegation.
