  Northern League (football) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Northern League (currently sponsored by the Arngrove Insurance and known as the Arngrove Northern League) is a football league in North East England for semi-professional and amateur teams.
The Northern League ran as one of two major amateur competitions (with the Isthmian League) in tandem with the professional Football League, Southern League and, since 1968, the Northern Premier League.
The League suffered a further blow to its prestige in 1995 when the Football Association limited the entry to the FA Trophy to the first three steps of the pyramid thereby disqualifying the Northern League's clubs and those in equivalent competitions from competing for the FA Trophy.

However, The Roman Catholic Diocese, the City of Albany, and Historic Albany Foundation are all in agreement that the building should be saved and are working towards a solution.
These two buildings are landmarks of Albany’s best preserved downtown street, and are located along Mayor Jennings’ proposed “entertainment corridor.” The building at 52 North Pearl was built as a townhouse in the 1820s, but its current facade is an excellent example of brick Queen-Anne architecture of the late 1870s.
The remaining buildings are of similar importance, but with so little cohesiveness, they could well prove the old maxim “together we stand divided we fall.” These buildings are far too important to Albany’s past and future to let that happen, and could serve as the nucleus for the revitalization of their part of Broadway.
