Blackpool are among the sides that have been relegated from League One and will face Stevenage next season.

The Seasiders lost 5-1 at Peterborough United on the last day of the season, a result which saw them join Doncaster Rovers, Colchester United and Crewe Alexandra as the teams dropping down to League Two.

This relegation is Blackpool’s third in just six seasons going back to when they dropped out of the Premier League at the end of the 2010-11 campaign.

Coming the other way are Cheltenham Town, who return to the Football League after just one season in the National League. They come up as champions.

Forest Green and Grimsby Town face each other in the National League play-off final at Wembley on Sunday, May 15 to decide who will join the Robins in League Two.
