For this season the league was split into two separate divisions, (very) loosly based on the geographical location of the clubs (I’m not sure how the Melton based teams ended up in the Western Division while Gresley Rovers & Coalville Town were in the Central Division !)

Before the start of the season the following teams moved to the league:

From the Coalville & District Amateur Football League

Moira United and Whitwick Colliery.

From the Kettering & District Amateur Football League

Kettering Town Reserves and Market Harborough Sports.

From the Loughborough & District Amateur Football Alliance

Barrow Old Boys, Quorn Methodists and Shepshed Albion.

From the South Derbyshire Football League

Overseal Institute.

Anstey MM (Formed by the merger of pre-war teams Anstey Methodists & Anstey St Mary’s) and Sileby British Legion were newly formed clubs.

Measham Imperial previously played in the league in 1939/40 and Whitwick White Cross previously played in the league in 1941/42 but neither had played since then during the war years.

Stewarts & Lloyds Corby Reserves also joined the league.
