* The 2019/20 season ended early because of the coronavirus pandemic with the last League 2 match - apart from the play-offs - being played on Tuesday March 10th. A points per game (PPG) system then replaced the traditional points system to decide final League placings - Cambridge United finished 16th using both systems. Click on table for full details.
