League Two Free Bets

There's always a great mix of teams in this division. There's the 18 teams that took part in the league last season, four sides relegated from League One last season and not wanting to spend too much time in League Two and two excited sides promoted from non-league football last season.

There's an intriguing combination of sides in the division with some former Premier League outfits who have fallen on hard times as well as club's fresh out of the non-league scene. The likes of Barnet and Dagenham and Redbridge are two recent examples of smaller sides who have made the jump from the semi-professional game and the 2017-18 season will see Forest Green Rovers at this level for the first time. Their promotion means that the Gloucestershire town of Nailsworth in which they are based, is the smallest settlement ever to host league football in this country with a population of just over 5,000.

The Dreaded Drop

At one time the bottom four teams in what was then Division Four used to have to stand for re-election to the league. This process developed into one where the side finishing bottom of the table were relegated to the Conference (now the National League) and replaced by the Conference Champions.  In recent years this has been adapted to the bottom two sides in League Two going down and being replaced by the National League winners and the winners of the Play-offs.

Not all the teams that get relegated are able to make it back into the Football League. Some suffer financial problems due to their relegation, for example Rushden & Diamonds, Chester and Hereford went out of business.  

The two teams promoted to League Two at the end of last season were Leyton Orient and Salford City with Notts County and Yeovil Town heading in the opposite direction.
