Crawley Town have been placed 13th in the final League Two table.

It is their best finishing position since they were relegated from League One five years ago, just beating the 14th place under Harry Kewell two years ago.

They have twice finished 19th and were once 20th since returning to the fourth tier.

The bottom two divisions of the EFL voted separately to officially declare the campaign over due to the coronavirus pandemic, although play-offs will still go ahead to determine the final promotion places.

Reds were 12th when action was halted but drop a place in the final standings.

They are overhauled on the points-per-game calculations by Walsall, who had played one match fewer.

Plans for next season are already under way.

Long-serving midfielder Jimmy Smith has left the club with contract news on further players expected.

The club have already triggered options which keep Ashley Nathaniel-George, David Sesay and Josh Docherty at Broadfield.

Yesterday’s decisions mean Coventry and Rotherham can celebrate promotion to the Championship while Swindon have been declared League Two champions. Crewe and Plymouth also go up automatically.

Wycombe, Oxford, Portsmouth and Fleetwood will contest the League One play-offs with Cheltenham, Exeter, Colchester and Northampton aiming to progress from the fourth tier.

Tranmere, who had proposed an alternative framework to the one chosen by the clubs, have been relegated to League Two, along with Southend and Bolton.

Relegation from League Two is still to be decided with Stevenage bottom but Macclesfield facing a potential points deduction and the National League still to confirm whether its campaign will go ahead.

EFL clubs had earlier voted to accept the league board’s framework to keep promotion, relegation and the play-offs and use an unweighted points-per-game system to decide the final table if the season was curtailed.

Barnsley and Tranmere had set out alternative plans while three other clubs had proposed amendments but the board’s plan was ratified.
