Who wins Scottish League One 2019/2020?
Who will win the 2019-20 Scottish League One?
The 2018-19 season saw Arbroath lift the Scottish League One title after a dominant campaign. As Falkirk were relegated from the Scottish Championship last season, they join the other favourites for the Scottish League One titles in Forfar Athletic, Raith Rovers, Montrose and Airdrieonians.
Falkirk finished last year in 12th place of the Scottish Championship under Scottish manager Ray McKinnon, tied on 38 points with Queen of the South (only relegated on goal difference.) Next season they hope to bounce back into the Championship by winning the 2019-20 Scottish League One. They have decided to stick with manager Ray McKinnon as they prepare for a title push with the help of captain 22 year old defender Jordan McGhee. Although they may have to sell some of their star players to compensate for the lower finances, they’ll still believe they have a good shot at winning the Scottish League One next season.
Forfar Athletic finished their last campaign in second place on 63 points, 7 points behind winners Arbroath. They then missed out on promotion through the playoffs as they lost in the semi final to Raith Rovers on aggregate. They’ll hope to improve on this standing next season if they are to gain promotion to the Championship. The fans will have high hopes as manager Jim Weir and South African captain Michael Travis have enough experience to guide the club to the title.
Raith Rovers finished last season disappointed after their playoff final defeat to Queen of the South 3-1 on aggregate. They finished the regular season in third place on 60 points under manager John McGlynn and captain Kyle Benedictus and will hope to improve on this standing next season as they push for the title.
Montrose finished fourth in the 2018-19 season of the Scottish League One and will be desperate to improve on this standing. They qualified for the playoff semi final but lost badly to Queen of the South 6-2 on aggregate. If they are to improve on this standing they’ll have to recruit well in the upcoming transfer window if they are going to mount a challenge for the title under Scottish manager Stewart Petrie.
Other teams that could be the surprise package in the 2019-20 season are Ian Murray’s Airdrieonians, Jim Duffy’s Dumbarton and Darren Young’s East Fife. If these teams have a few results go their way next season, who knows how well they’ll do.
