Following meetings of The FA’s Alliance and Leagues Committees, the club allocations for Steps 1 to 6 of the National League System for season 2019-20 have now been confirmed.
Widnes have been allocated a place in the Evo-Stik League Division One North West after a 12th placed finish in their debut campaign at Step 4 last season.

Brighouse Town, Marske United, Ossett United, Pickering Town, Pontefract Collieries and Tadcaster Albion have been laterally moved from the Evo-Stik West Division, while Dunston UTS and City of Liverpool have been promoted from the Northern League and North West Counties League respectively.
