On January 7th, 1928, the Durham F.A. suspended Crook Town F.C.. Although the reasons for this are not clear, it was almost certainly to do with club finances. After an investigation, Crook’s record was deleted from the records on February 9th. Town had won 11 of their 13 games, scoring 49 against 14, and, with 22 points, were well-placed to retain the title.

Stockton transferred to the North Eastern League at the end of the season and it seems possible that Chilton Colliery Recreation Athletic resigned. Heaton Stannington joined the Northern League.

 

1939-1940

 

The outbreak of the Second World War caused severe disruption in Britain, but the Northern League did not follow the example of the Football League and continued to operate. However, Whitby United resigned resigned on September 30th and Evenwood Town quit the competition on October 25th. Billingham and Cockfield were the next to leave because of increasing ‘wartime difficulties’, on November 29th. When Ferryhill Athletic withdrew on December 16th, an EGM was held in the Bishop Auckland Board Room. Representatives of the remaining eight clubs agreed to run a new competition from January 1st. On March 20th, both Tow Law Town and Willington also resigned, having played 4 and 3 games respectively. This left six clubs to complete the season.

The competition was suspended at the end of the 1939-1940 season. After the Second World War ended the Northern League started up again, with 12 playing members and two non-playing members (Heaton Stannington and Whitby United). Billingham, Cockfield and Crook Town did not reappear. Their places were taken by Billingham Synthonia ( a new club), Brandon Welfare and Crook Colliery Welfare, which had no connection with Crook Town and had been formed in 1943 through the joining together of the Pease West Welfare and Hole-in-the-Wall Colliery clubs. Stanley United also re-joined the Northern League.
