Jump to navigation Jump to search

The 2018–19 National League season, known as the Vanarama National League for sponsorship reasons, is the fourth season under English football's new title of National League, fifteenth season consisting of three divisions and the fortieth season overall.[1]

The National League covers the top two levels of non-League football in England. The National League is the fifth highest level of the overall pyramid, while the National League North and National League South exist at the sixth level. The top team and the winner of the play-off of the Premier division will be promoted to English Football League Two, while the bottom four are relegated to the North or South divisions. The champions of the North and South divisions will be promoted to the Premier division, alongside the play-off winners from each division. The bottom three in each of the North and South divisions are relegated to the premier divisions of the Northern Premier League, Southern Football League Central or South, or Isthmian League.

Promotion and relegation[edit]

The following clubs changed divisions after the 2017–18 season:

Despite a 2–1 defeat to Boston United on 21 April 2018, Salford City became 2017–18 National League North champions after Harrogate Town lost 3–1 to Bradford Park Avenue. Havant & Waterlooville were crowned 2017-18 National League South champions on 28 April 2018 after a 3–2 victory over Concord Rangers. On 13 May 2018, Harrogate Town were promoted after a 3–0 win against Brackley Town in the 2017–18 National League North playoff final. All three teams will play in the National League for the first time in their History. On the same day as Harrogate's promotion, Braintree Town were also promoted after beating Hampton & Richmond 4–3 on penalties after a 1–1 draw in the 2017–18 National League South playoff final, securing an instant return to the National League.

On 24 April 2018, after 97 years as an EFL club, Chesterfield were relegated to the National League following Morecambe's 0–0 draw against Cambridge United. On 5 May 2018, despite a 3–0 victory against Chesterfield, Barnet became the second club to be relegated from League Two following Morecambe's 0–0 draw against Coventry City, ending their three-year stay in the EFL.

These teams will replace Macclesfield Town, Tranmere Rovers, Chester, Guiseley, Torquay United and Woking. Macclesfield Town were crowned 2017–18 National League champions and promoted to League Two on 21 April 2018 after a 2–0 victory over Eastleigh, ending their six-year absence from the EFL. Tranmere Rovers were promoted to League Two on 12 May 2018 after a 2–1 victory over Boreham Wood in the playoff final and returned to the EFL after a three-year absence. Boreham Wood and Sutton United were invited to compete in the 2018–19 Scottish Challenge Cup in a new expansion of that competition as the highest-finishing remaining teams in the division.[2]

Chester were the first team to be relegated from National League on 8 April 2018 after a 2–0 loss to Tranmere Rovers. Despite staying up on the final day for the past two seasons, it was not to be third time lucky for Guiseley who joined them on 17 April 2018 after a 1–0 loss to relegation rivals Barrow. Torquay United became the third team to be relegated from the National league on 21 April 2018 after a 1–1 draw with Hartlepool United, confirming the club's first ever relegation to the Sixth Tier. The fourth and final team to suffer relegation was Woking, who were relegated on 28 April 2018 following a 2–1 defeat to Dover Athletic, ending their five-year stay in the National League.
