    Two of three teams which have applied for promotion are the two teams of the Northern League that have been in higher divisions before: Bishop Auckland were a Northern Premier League club from 1988-2004, and Whitley Bay from 1989-2000. So to a certain extent it’s only Dunston of the ‘stick-in-the-mud’ Northern League teams who are breaking the mould in applying to go up.

    Dunston UTS have applied to go up for the last couple of years, in addition to this year, so much less of a surprise than Whitley Bay and Bishop Auckland, who have been very cautious of moving up. Finishing in the top 2, ahead of the less ambitious clubs, is difficult though. If Dunston win their games in hand on Whitley Bay, they’d only be 1 point behind them. I don’t think it’s likely that either will catch Consett or Spennymoor Town though, so probably no team will move up again.
