Previewing League Two, 2021–2022

Outside the Main Stand at Oldham Athletic, one of the English Football League’s oldest members

In 1921 the Football League expanded to 4 divisions with northern and southern third divisions, and in 1958 assumed its current structure, albeit with different names — four nationwide divisions.
