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

  • Desford Colliery to the Coalville & District Amateur Football League.
  • Morris Sports to the Loughborough & District Amateur Football Alliance (due to a ruling being introduced that playing members must be employed by Herbert Morris Ltd.)

Leicester City ‘B’ left the league after the end of the season. I think they disbanded (in that City only ran three teams after this season) but I need to do more investigation in the Midland Intermediate League and other youth leagues to prove this.
