Promotion and relegation

In the twenty-seventh 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, so second placed Morecambe took their place. Whitley Bay and Horwich RMI were relegated to the First Division; these two clubs were replaced by readmitted Leek Town (returning from the Southern League), First Division winners Blyth Spartans and second placed Bamber Bridge. In the First Division Caernarfon Town left the League to join the League of Wales while Goole Town and Mossley left the League altogether at the end of the season; they were replaced by newly-admitted Lincoln United and Bradford Park Avenue.
