Cobblers to take on Cheltenham Town in the play offs

9 June 2020

League 2 clubs have voted by an overwhelming majority to formally end the 2019/20 season.

The division had previously indicated their preference for curtailment but following today’s Extraordinary General Meeting, clubs were required to pass a resolution in accordance with Regulation 9A.

As a result, the final League standings have now been confirmed meaning that Swindon Town have been confirmed as Champions with Crewe Alexandra and Plymouth Argyle securing the second and third automatic promotion places to League 1.

Cheltenham Town, Exeter City, Colchester United and Northampton Town will contest the Sky Bet Play-Offs with the following schedule agreed:

• 1st Legs
Thursday 18th June
Colchester United v Exeter City – 5.15pm
Northampton Town v Cheltenham Town – 7.45pm

• 2nd Legs
Monday 22nd June
Exeter City v Colchester United - 5.15pm
Cheltenham Town v Northampton Town – 8.00pm

• Final (Wembley Stadium)
Monday 29th June 7.30pm

Under the proposals agreed by clubs, the 24th placed club in the League 2 will be relegated to the National League provided the Board receives the necessary assurances that the National League will start season 2020/21 (i.e. the relegated club in League 2 has somewhere to play). Due to ongoing disciplinary matters, the final placings cannot yet be confirmed.
