Football League Third Division North

öhfff

The Third Division North was the 3rd division of the English football league system between 1921 to 1958. It ran along with the Third Division South, with clubs being either elected to the League or relegated from a higher division allocated to either league based on their geographical location. Some clubs in the English Midlands shuffled between the Third Division North and the Third Division South based on the composition of the two leagues.
