SEASON THREE IN DIVISION THREE



Well the news we were all expecting has been delivered and our season is over. We didn’t even make the Play Offs… The club released this…

"League One clubs have voted by an overwhelming majority to formally end the 2019-20 season.

As a result, the final League standings have now been confirmed meaning that Coventry City have been confirmed as Champions with Rotherham United securing the second automatic promotion place to the Championship.

Wycombe Wanderers, Oxford United, Portsmouth and Fleetwood Town will contest the Sky Bet Play-Offs with the schedule to be announced in due course, while Tranmere Rovers, Southend United and Bolton Wanderers will start the 2020-21 season in League Two."


Chief Executive Officer Jim Rodwell said: “Although we braced ourselves for today’s decision, we are incredibly disappointed by the outcome. We were committed to finishing the season on the pitch and we made our stance perfectly clear throughout what has been an incredibly challenging period for every club within the EFL. Ultimately, we now have to move forward. Our fans have been magnificent, and we know how much they, like the players and staff, will be hurting today. But it’s our supporters who have the set the standard over the last two seasons, following the team home and away in incredible numbers, and we have failed to match them. As a club, we have to strive to be better and ensure we learn from the mistakes we have made because regardless of the circumstances, finishing eighth in League One isn’t good enough and I don’t think anyone would tell you otherwise. Our sole focus moving forward must be to build a squad that is capable of winning this division next season. I have spoken to Phil Parkinson at length and we have a very clear idea of what we need to achieve that goal. It is our responsibility to put that plan into action immediately and ensure that whenever the 2020-21 season begins, we are ready.”
