Ipswich Town became the first team to go down from the Championship to League One, dropping into the third tier for the first time since 1957.

They needed to beat opposition Birmingham City this afternoon but ended up getting a 1-1 draw, to confirm their relegation.

Lincoln City became the first club to win promotion in the English Football League this season after drawing 1-1 with Cheltenham Town.

Mansfield’s draw at Northampton and MK Dons’ defeat at Tranmere meant a point was enough to seal Lincoln’s return to League One for the first time since 1999.

In the National League, two more teams have that dreaded ‘R’ placed next to their name, meaning all the relegation spots have been sealed.

Aldershot Town and Havant & Waterlooville were those clubs to go down. The Shots could only 1-1 draw with Hartlepool United and Havant lost 3-2 at Solihull Moors.
