National League 2019/20 Season Preview

It promises to be another thrilling season in the National League with a host of clubs believing they have the quality required to take that leap into the Football League.

National League Official Betting Partner, LVBET lists Notts County as the title favourites and while the Magpies are yet to add to their numbers this summer, their settled squad will be well fancied to set the pace.

Their form pre-season has been good and under Neil Ardley, they will aim to put off the field issues behind them and look for a quick return to the Football League. One point of note for Notts County is that favourites for the National League title have not had a good record in previous years.

Last season’s losing Promotion Finalists AFC Fylde will be keen to go one step better this time around and are joint second favourites for promotion, alongside Chesterfield. Both have been very active in the transfer market, with incomings and outgoings.


Looking at AFC Fylde in more detail, Dave Challinor’s men will look to striker Danny Rowe to score them the goals for promotion and with investment in the squad will be hoping others can chip in to give AFC Fylde promotion success at the end of this season.

Chesterfield had a good end to the season once John Sheridan took over and smart investment in their squad has optimism in the betting market ahead of the start of the season and they will likely see more backers over the coming week to get promoted.

Wrexham, Harrogate Town and Barnet are the next four teams in the promotion betting shakeup, but several others will fancy their chances too in what looks to be a very competitive division.

If you fancy an outsider this season, both Solihull Moors and Stockport County are on offer at bigger odds to be promoted, while Torquay have attracted interest in making it back-to-back promotions.
