There are eighteen teams that spent the whole of 2011 in League Two (four teams are promoted each season, and two are relegated). Congratulations to Shrewsbury Town, who despite missing out in the League Two playoffs last May ended the year as the League Two side that had gained the most points (an impressive 86) during 2011. A notable mention has to go to Accrington Stanley who lost the fewest games in 2011 of any side that spent the whole calendar year in the division. Northampton town end the year rock bottom and will hope that the appointment of Aidy Boothroyd will lead to a more successful 2012.
If you include sides that spent at least some of 2011 in League Two then it’s Crawley Town who finish top of the pile with an exceptional record. Chesterfield and Bury (promoted at the end of last season also feature in the top three). Last year certainly looks like one to forget for Argyle fans who see their side only narrowly finishing above the now non-league Stockport County.
Stay tuned to the website over the coming days as I will be revealing the winners and losers of 2011 from a League One, Championship and finally Premier League perspective.
