Whilst relegation is awful for any club in any league, the added humiliation of dropping out of the Football League makes relegation from League 2 the worst possible experience for any Football Club. Despite the clear improvement in the standard of non-league football over recent years, the pain and anguish (along with the financial implications for clubs and stains of the CV’s of the players involved) cannot be matched in football and this makes the League 2 relegation scrap the most exciting, nail-biting and extraordinary of the lot. It’s been no different this season and the bottom five still have plenty to play for.
