League Two 2022-23 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. It's an important league with sides hoping to make it into League One and dreading being relegated to the National League if finishing in the bottom two.

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 for the 2022/23 season were Grimsby Town and Stockport County. Both have had successful seasons with Grimsby reaching the last eight of the FA Cup and Stockport challenging for another promotion. Hartlepool and Rochdale have been relegated to the National League.
