The FA place Leek Town and Kidsgrove Athletic in the Evo-Stik First Division South West


Leek Town, Kidsgrove Athletic and Newcastle Town are all set to be moved into the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division South East for the 2019/20 season following the FA announcing the allocations for the various Non-League divisions.

The move comes just 12 months after the Northern Premier League changed their set up from North and South to East and West.

Leek, Kidsgrove and Newcastle will continue to play against each other as well facing Chasetown, Glossop North End and Market Drayton Town who all make the switch with the three Staffordshire sides.

They will also face old rivals Sutton Coldfield Town who have been transferred from the Southern League Central First Division, while Worksop Town and Ilkeston Town have been promoted from their respective leagues to join the Northern Premier League.

Making up the division will be Belper Town, Carlton Town, Cleethorpes Town, Frickley Athletic, Lincoln United, Loughborough Dynamo, Sheffield FC, Stamford, Stocksbridge Park Steels and Wisbech Town.

The league in full:
Belper Town
