Four of last season's North teams have switched to the new West league – Bournville, Loughborough, Luctonians and Stourbridge – while champions Hull have been promoted to National One.
The clubs remaining in the North competition alongside Fylde are Blaydon, Chester, Harrogate, Huddersfield, Hull Ionians, Rotherham Titans, Sedgley Park, Sheffield Tigers, Tynedale and Wharfedale.
Fylde joint-head coach Alex Loney told The Gazette: “There have been a lot of unknowns surrounding the league for next year – we weren't sure whether Chester would be staying or Leeds Tykes would be coming down – but there are more local games and we can all look forward to the return of the derbies against Hoppers.
“The fixtures will come out in due course and we can start to prepare, but first everyone deserves a bit of a rest.”
