League Two 2021-22 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 but ended up going back in the other direction. Last season showed that again with Macclesfield Town being relegated in a season that was cut short by the health crisis.

2021-22 League Two Season

The new season started on August 7 and another tight season is expected. There's a lot to play for in League Two with the chance of climbing the ladder or ending up relegated to the National League. There are two new league clubs this season, one in the league for the first time and another returning after relegation. Sutton United, most famous for an FA Cup win over Coventry City won the National League last season. Back in League Two are Hartlepool so that's Sky Sports presenter Jeff Stelling in a good mood.

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 Southend United and Grimsby Town.
