League Two: Bolton and Cambridge earn promotion, Cheltenham take title

  • Cambridge beat Grimsby, Bolton sink Crawley
  • Cheltenham win over Harrogate clinches top spot

Cambridge and Bolton joined League Two champions Cheltenham in securing promotion on the final day of the season.

Cambridge had stumbled with back-to-back defeats but a 3-0 victory over already-relegated Grimsby ensured they will play in the third tier of English football for the first time since 2002.

Wycombe went down fighting with a 3-0 win at Middlesbrough not enough to prevent an immediate return to League One. Gareth Ainsworth's side were all but down at kick-off, needing a 10-goal margin of victory and for other results to go their way. Goals from Fred Onyedima, Garath McCleary and Jason McCarthy ensured they at least moved above Rotherham and Sheffield Wednesday in the final table.

‘Big ship to turn around’: Bolton ready to rise again after years of strife

Club sit one win from an instant return to League One after a wretched start, inspired by a manager who borrows from Bielsa

With the short-lived European Super League still fresh in the thoughts of apathetic supporters at Old Trafford and beyond, one wonders whether Bolton Wanderers may have won a few more hearts of late. “Hopefully, because I don’t think they’ll be disappointed,” says Ian Evatt, the League Two club’s manager. “That is one of my goals: to stop people in Bolton wearing Manchester United kits. I want the young kids and future fans to be wearing our shirts, not Man United’s. If we can do things right on and off the pitch with this club, hopefully, we will capture some new fans and build our fanbase.”

In 2008, after giving Atlético Madrid a bloody nose to reach the last 16 of the Uefa Cup, Bolton were 47th in the European rankings, above Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund. But since dropping out of the Premier League in 2012 disaster has never been far from their door and, two years ago, an emergency food bank was set up to support unpaid staff after the club entered administration. A 12-point deduction, relegation and more strife followed but they finally appear poised to reverse the direction of travel.

Youri Djorkaeff: ‘I was in love with England, its fans and weather’

The World Cup winner discusses his old teammates, his job at Fifa and why he rejected Liverpool for Bolton

By Richard Foster for The Football Mine

Youri Djorkaeff played alongside some of the greatest footballers of his generation. “Zizou was amazing,” he says of Zinedine Zidane. “We were teammates for 10 years and we had this chemistry to know exactly where each other was on the pitch, to play one touch, two touch. But the number one was Ronaldo. He was simply ‘Ó Fenómeno’.” Djorkaeff played with Ronaldo at Inter in the mid-1990s and the pair teamed up recently as part of Djorkaeff’s current job as the CEO of the Fifa Foundation. Djorkaeff was in São Paulo and Brasilia to push the charity, so enlisted his old friend for support. “Ronnie said: ‘Whenever I’m needed, you can call me.’ Of course, this provides us with visibility as Ronaldo is Ronaldo.”

Ronaldo is one of a multitude of good connections the 52-year-old can call upon. “I have been in touch with David Beckham, who is keen to get involved. I went to Messi’s house, where we spoke for hours about links with his foundation. We spoke to Rashford. We are proud of what the players are doing today. It’s important to have all these ambassadors for the Fifa Foundation who appreciate the need to show humanity. They are all saying: ‘If you need me, I’m here to help.’ It’s not bullshit.”

The Guardian view on lower league football: unsafe in a broken market | Editorial

Clubs playing to empty stands are in grave financial peril and the government appears oblivious to dangers beyond the Premier League spotlight

Sport has become a touchstone during the pandemic. Whether the continuation or otherwise of sports the British hold dear deserves to assume so central a place is another matter. A game is after all only a game, and is of little consequence compared with how hospitals, care homes, schools and universities are coping. But from the government’s wish that televised football recommence to boost the nation’s spirits, to the fraught discussion of which clubs and leagues will survive, the question of sport’s future has been inescapable.

The government has, as in most areas, managed to achieve the worst of all worlds. It has permitted the return of sport but without fans, making many clubs nonviable. Hence the long-running argument over whether the Premier League should bail out the rest of football’s creaking pyramid. There were hopes this might be resolved this week, but as with most things Covid-related – the arts bailout, the future of cinemas, aviation, the night-time economy – there is a stalemate, leaving many organisations to muddle through while the government sits on its hands.

League Two 2020-21 season preview

Salford appear well placed to continue their rise and Bolton should have a season to enjoy after back-to-back relegations

Frustration has been a largely foreign feeling at Salford City in recent years but, after a mid-table finish in their first Football League campaign, a fifth promotion in seven seasons is the explicit aim. They are fiercely ambitious and continue to put their money where their mouth is. Ian Henderson, prolific for Rochdale in League One and one of several eye-catching summer signings, found the net from the penalty spot on debut in the cup and is one of several players to drop down the pyramid in search of success, with Ashley Hunter joining from Fleetwood and the former Preston captain Tom Clarke strengthening Graham Alexander’s defence.
