Bulls gain promotion to Step 4
15th May, 2018
Due to a withdrawal of a club at Step 4, AFC Mansfield have been promoted to the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League for the 2018/19 season.
The Bulls finished third in the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division, missing out on the original two promotion spots by just goal difference having amassed 96 points.
But, it has been confirmed today that they will move up alongside champions Pontefract Collieries and runners-up Pickering Town after Andover Town withdrew, resulting in a Step 4 reshuffle.
We are sorry to see all three sides leave the NCEL having been great ambassadors for the league but we are sure they will go from strength-to-strength and quickly make themselves at home at their new level.
It is not yet known what the repercussions of AFC Mansfield's move up will have on the rest of the league with both of our divisions being reduced to twenty teams but as soon as we know the proposed line-up we will announced it on our website.
