Nobes' Trivia Question 18 solution

Two weeks ago, Nobes asked you this football trivia question:

Only four sides have ever achieved this feat. Lincoln City were the first and the most recent team to accomplish it were Carlisle United. What?

Did you get the answer?

The solution was instantly winning promotion back to the Football League following relegation.

Lincoln achieved it in 1988, after becoming the first side to be automatically relegated to Non League. Two years later, Darlington achieved the same feat.

It wasn't until 2004 - when Shrewsbury won promotion back to League Two at the first time of asking that it was done again. A year later, and Carlisle did the same thing.

Well done if you worked out the answer, and Nobes will have another question for you soon.
