Promotion and relegationEdit

In the twenty-second season of the Northern Premier League Colne Dynamoes should have been promoted as champions, but folded at the end of the season, so 2nd placed Gateshead took their place in the Football Conference while relegated Chorley took Gateshead's place. Meanwhile, Caernarfon Town and Rhyl were relegated; these two sides were replaced by First Division winners Leek Town and second placed Droylsden. Eastwood Hanley and Penrith left the First Division at the end of the season and were replaced by newly admitted Bridlington Town and Warrington Town.
