Although the league established itself as one of the strongest leagues in the country, routinely providing the winners of the FA Amateur Cup, it was still seen as being at a lower level than the Southern League and Northern Premier League which were the top regional semi-professional leagues.
The league began to admit professionalism in the 1970s, although it refused to participate in the formation of the Alliance Premier League in 1979.
The Isthmian League was reduced back down to three divisions, and its boundaries were changed to remove the overlap with the Southern League.

However, although the Isthmian League split has gone ahead, the split of the Northern Premier League has been cancelled for the time being, and may instead be implemented for the 2007-08 season.

 Non-League Times
As the Football League became established in the north and midlands, it became clear that some sort of merger with the Southern League was desirable, particularly as the latter's clubs often matched or out-performed their 'League' rivals.
The result was that the Alliance initially consisted of 13 Southern and 7 NPL clubs, and for the first two years the Isthmian (with initial justification) considered itself on a par with the Alliance.
Talks were held to increase the exchange with the Football League to two clubs, one promoted automatically and one via a play-off system, but in 2001 the League voted 69-3 against such a move.
