Town Back in Div Two!

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 10/06/2004

GRIMSBY have been "reinstated" to Division Two next season following the league's announcement of a bizarre renumbering system - for the second time in a just over a decade. Division One, formerly known as Division Two, will now be known simply as "The Championship".

The idea is to raise the profile of the Football League, despite the fact that it (with the notable exception of Blundell Park) enjoyed the best attendances for 40 years last season.

"The Championship is a term steeped in the history of the League. It will place a new emphasis on its status," League chairman Sir Brian Mawhinney told the BBC.

"Not only is it a gateway to the Premiership, it is one of Europe's leading league competitions, in terms of the standard of football, the stadia and the numbers of supporters attending".

The repeated renumbering of the leagues would now appear to be Grimsby's best chance of returning to Division One.
