Notes[edit]

  • ^ During the 1994-95 season the Premier League was to be reduced to twenty teams from twenty-two, so there were four relegation places in the Premier League and in Division One and only two promotion places in Division One and Division Two, therefore the runners-up didn't earn automatic promotion.
