The grand finale of the season for League One. Fans have travelled all over the country to back their sides for the last game of the season, and we have collected those numbers in one place! Below shows the attendances and results for the grand finale game of the League One 2016/17 season.

Sky Bet League One

A win for Bolton Wanderers means that they have secured the final automatic promotion spot on the final day of the season. The trophy winners, Sheffield United, beat local side, Chesterfield, which means that they finish the season on a grand total of 100 points, after a successful and thoroughly rewarding season for the Blades after six years in Sky Bet League One.

At The Valley, Charlton Athletic fans saw protests take place before and during the game, but the Addicks ended the season on a high. Karl Robinson’s side saw out a 3 – 0 victory against the already-relegated Swindon Town.

I am also a qualified referee with the London FA. Twitter: @ValleyFloydFred
