Northern League 2011-12

Northern League er en fodboldliga i Nordengland for semiprofessionelle hold og amatørhold. Ligaen blev grundlagt i 1889 og er dermed den næstældste aktive fodboldliga i verden, kun overgået af The Football League, som er ét år ældre.

Ligaen består af to divisioner, Division One og Division Two, der hver består af 22 hold. Divisionerne befinder sig på niveau 9 og 10 i ligasystemet i engelsk fodbold. Ligaerne dækker County Durham, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, det nordlige Cumbria og den nordlige halvdel af North Yorkshire.

De to bedste hold i Division One kan rykke op i Northern Premier League Division One North, hvis visse kriterier er opfyldt.

Historie[redigér | redigér wikikode]

Northern League var sammen med Isthmian League de to vigtigste amatørfodboldturneringer, som blev afviklet i parløb med den professionelle fodboldliga, Southern League og, siden 1968, Northern Premier League.

I 1974 holdt The Football Association imidlertid op med at skelne mellem professionelle og amatører, og amatørligaer som Northern League måtte finde en plads i det engelske ligasystem. I modsætning til sin sydlige pendant, Isthmian League, afviste Northern League gentagne invitationer til at blive indplaceret på niveauet under Alliance Premier League, da den liga blev oprettet på niveau 5 i ligasystemet i 1979. Northern League forblev uden for ligasystemet indtil 1991, hvilket blev dyrt for dens status, som faldt igennem 1980'erne, mens ligaens førende klubber skiftede til andre ligaer, der var med i ligasystemet som f.eks. Northern Counties East Football League. Da Northern League endelig blev presset ind i ligasystemet, var muligheden for at blive placeret på niveauet under Football Conference for længst forpasset, og i stedet blev Northern League placeret på niveauet under den laveste division i Northern Premier League.

Ligaens prestige faldt yderligere i 1995, da The Football Association begrænsede adgangen til FA Trophy til de første tre niveauer i National League System, dvs. niveau 5-7 i det engelske ligasystem, hvorved holdene i Northern League (og hold i ligaer på samme niveau) blev udelukket fra deltagelse i FA Trophy. Northern League-klubberne deltager nu i FA Vase.
