League Two: Sutton United dreams of repeating the path of the other newly promoted by the National League

With Hartlepool’s victory   in the National League Play Off  final , League Two ‘s team is complete,   so the Pools and  Sutton United  will replace Grimsby Town and Southend United relegated at the end of this season to the lower division.

The other changes in the staff are represented by Rochdale, Northampton Town, Swindon Town and Bristol Rovers relegated from  League One.

The precedent of the Leyton Orient

The last London club to have earned promotion to League Two was  Leyton Orient , the O’s won the title in the 2018/19 season with 89 points under the guidance of Manager  Justin Edinburgh,  who sadly passed away in 2019 due to a heart attack. and thanks to the goals of  Macauley Bonne  striker of Zimbabwe in goal on 23 occasions and protagonist in the  Championship  this season with the shirt of  QPR .

The Brisbane Road Club   is still in League Two, and this season has been close to the Play Off area; The  Sutton United  will therefore try to follow the same path of  Leyton  Orient  aiming to stay in the English fourth series possible.

To do this, he will have to get as many points as possible, even in the derby with the  O’s .

The other newly promoted by the National League

Another element that gives confidence to the next path in  League Two  for the U’s is that of the newly promoted in previous seasons; in fact, in the last four seasons all eight clubs promoted have kept the category on their debut in the following season.

Furthermore, seven of these are still in the  EFL : in  League Two in  addition to Leyton Orient also Forest Green, Tranmere, Salford, Barrow and Harrogate Town while  Lincoln City is in  League One , which in this season he came close to the  Championship  losing the Play Off final with Blackpool.

The only club not currently in EFL is  Macclesfield Town , relegated after two seasons in League Two and currently not registered in other leagues for economic reasons.

The best placement in the last four seasons for the newly promoted is that of  Tranmere  who in the debut season in  League Two  was immediately promoted to  League One , winning the Play Offs: overcoming Forest Green in the semifinals   and winning the final over  Newport County.

Thus improving the performance at the debut of  Lincoln City   which in the previous season stopped in the semifinal overtaken by Exeter City, which in turn lost the final with Coventry.

From the parts of  Gander Green Lane  are preparing for next season, including confirmations of the players protagonists this season in search of new profiles to be included; not least also to the executive reorganization in addition to the refurbishment of the sports facilities and those dedicated to the store.
