History

A previous Division One North existed for two seasons from 2002 to 2004. The division was formed from a merger of the Isthmian League First Division and the Isthmian League Second Division at the end of the 2001–02 season, the idea being to reduce travel distance for teams in the Isthmian league.

However, the creation of the Conference South reduced the number of teams in the Isthmian League, meaning only one Division One section was necessary. The F.A., however, decided that there should be 6, rather than 4, 'step four' divisions of the National League System, again to reduce travel costs. As a result, Division One North was reformed for the 2006–07 season, with 11 teams transferring to the Isthmian League from the old Southern League Division One East, 8 teams from the various leagues below it, 2 relegated from the Isthmian League Premier Division, plus Canvey Island, who had asked to be re-allocated to Step 4 from the Football Conference (Step 1). The new division covers Norfolk, Suffolk, Kent, Essex, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire.
