1939-1940

 

The Midland League season began as normal late in August, but the competition was suspended on September 3rd.  Burton Town, Scarborough, Shrewsbury Town and all Football League reserve sides stopped playing altogether, but the remaining eight clubs played in two successive competitions, the second of which was abandoned.  Peterborough United, winners of the second ‘league’ defeated Scunthorpe United, winners of the first ‘league’, 3-2, in an unofficial ‘championship’ decider, though some records state that the first competition was regarded as ‘the championship’.

At the end of the season, all Football League clubs, apart from Scunthorpe United, withdrew their reserve sides from the Midland League to join the new North Regional League, which was for Football League second elevens only.  Boston United, Corby Town, King’s Lynn and Wisbech Town also resigned.  This left only nine clubs.  The North Eastern League had also suffered from the withdrawal of its Football League reserve sides and eight clubs from that competition now joined the Midland League, along with Skegness Town and Sutton Town.
