Departures from the Metropolitan League during the close season were Brentwood Town, Woodford Town, Hillingdon Borough Reserves and  Stevenage Town Reserves. Four new clubs joined the league for the 1968–69 season. The league now has a membership of fourteen clubs for this campaign. The only other notable change is Brentwood Town Reserves have replaced their first team, who had moved up to the Southern League
