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.

League Two History 

Currently sponsored by Skybet, League One is previously known as the Third Division and to fans of an older age it's Division Four.  Its current name has been in existence since the 2004-05 season and previous winners are:

  • 2016-17: Portsmouth
  • 2015-16: Northampton Town
  • 2014-15: Burton Albion
  • 2013-14: Chesterfield
  • 2012-13: Gillingham
  • 2011-12: Swindon
  • 2010-11: Chesterfield
  • 2009-10: Notts County
  • 2008-09: Brentford
  • 2007-08: MK Dons
  • 2006-07: Walsall
  • 2005-06: Carlisle United
  • 2004-05: Yeovil Town

Of those teams Brentford and Burton Albion are now in the Championship while Yeovil and Notts County are back in League Two.

The Play-Offs 

There are three automatic promotion places in League Two. The sides finishing fourth to seventh go into the play-offs with two-legged semi-finals and then a final at Wembley Stadium. Previous Winners are:

  • 2016-17: Blackpool
  • 2015-16: AFC Wimbledon
  • 2014-15: Southend United
  • 2013-14: Fleetwood Town
  • 2012-13: Bradford City
  • 2011-12: Crewe Alexandra
  • 2010-11: Stevenage
  • 2009-10: Dagenham & Redbridge
  • 2008-09: Gillingham
  • 2007-08: Stockport County
  • 2006-07: Bristol Rovers
  • 2005-06: Cheltenham Town
  • 2004-05: Southend United

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 a process 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 Conference winners and the winners of the Conference 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.  Of teams relegated since 2004-05, 14 will be playing in non-league football this coming season. This includes Torquay United who have been relegated, promoted back to League Two and then relegated again.

The two teams promoted to League Two at the end of last season were Barnet and Bristol Rovers.  Barnet have been a bit of a yo-yo club while Bristol Rovers returned to the league just a season after being relegated.
