  • Leicester YMCA resigned from the league pre-season.

After the season finished the following teams moved from the league:

  • Rugby Town Reserves to the Warwickshire Combination

Hinckley Athletic Reserves left the league. They rejoined the Senior League in 1956/57 but I’m unsure if they played any league football for the two seasons in between.

Leicester Nomads disbanded at the end of the season.
