The Manchester League had lost Oldham Athletic to the Lancashire Combination at the end of the 1903/04 season and within a few years the ambitious Latics joined the Football League Division 2. Witton Albion joined the competition from The Combination and Oughtrington Park re-joined. With a membership of 16 clubs and, at least, one strong newcomer, the Manchester League continued to operate as a respected competition.

nb Glossop United resigned during the season, but the club’s fixtures were taken over by Heywood United, so the campaign ended, as it had begun, with League membership standing at 16 clubs.
