AFC Bury granted entry in to the tenth tier of English football, in the North West Counties Division One North. They'll ground share with Radcliffe FC next season at Stainton Park. Should they get half the support Bury got last season, they should walk the league. FC Isle of Man have also been granted entry in to the tenth tier, joining the North West Counties Division One South. They'll pay for the travelling expenses of all the sides that have to travel to the Isle of Man next season.
