The 2021/22 League One and League Two seasons have come to an end, with just the playoffs left to determine who will play second and third tier football next term.

Other sides haven't been so lucky. It's been a gruelling campaign for many, with plenty of sides suffering the ultimate low of relegations.

Here are the confirmed relegated sides in League One and League Two.


Which teams have been relegated from League One 2022?

Crewe were the first team to go, having been relegated in April. Doncaster, Wimbledon and Gillingham all joined them later that month.

Final 2021/22 League One table

  • 21) Gillingham (R), P46, 40pts
  • 22) Doncaster (R), P46, 38pts
  • 23) Wimbledon (R), P46, 37pts
  • 24) Crewe (R), P46, 29pts

Have teams been relegated to League One?

The Championship's three relegation spots have been filled by Barnsley, Derby and Peterborough. They will all be playing in League One next season.

Which teams have been promoted to League One?

Forest Green Rovers ended up winning the League Two title on goal difference ahead of Exeter City, who finished second. Bristol Rovers took the third automatic promotion spot.

Northampton cruelly missed out on an automatic spot having scored fewer goals than Bristol Rovers, with the two sides locked on 80 points with the same goal difference. They will face seventh placed Mansfield in the playoffs, with the other tie seeing Port Vale take on Swindon.


Which teams have been relegated from League Two 2022?

There will be no thrilling final day escape stories coming from League Two this year, with both relegation spaces already filled.

Scunthorpe's 72-year stay in the English Football League came to an end in April when they were defeated by Leyton Orient on Good Friday. They were later joined by Oldham, who became the first club to have played in the Premier League to drop out of the top four divisions of the game in England with their relegation.

Final 2021/22 League Two table

  • 23) Oldham Athletic (R), P46, 38pts
  • 24) Scunthorpe United (R) P46, 26pts

Has a team been promoted to League Two?

Not yet, though the promotion race is heating up in the National League.

Wrexham and Stockport are locked on 88 points at the top of the National League, while Solihull Moors are eyeing that automatic promotion spot too.

Two of those three will qualify for the play-off semi-finals, while fourth to seventh will make the quarter-finals. Halifax, Notts County, Grimsby and Chesterfield currently hold those positions, but Dagenham & Redbridge and Boreham Wood remain in with a shout.
