Relegated with positive GD? Promoted with negative GD?

I think Easthouses Lily are the only senior club ever relegated (under regular conditions) without negative GD... EOS Premier Division 2008-09: came 11th on 0.

Inverness have come 9th on +1 :o!

Playoffs await them...

Dumbarton were promoted via playoffs from SFL2 2011-12: finished 3rd on 0... Brechin from SPFL1 2016-17: finished 4th on -6... Edinburgh City from SPFL2 2021-22: finished 4th on -6.

Caley Thistle had the fourth-best goal difference in the league, pipping Airdrie because they lost 2-0 at Hampden, and were 3 points from the top half of the table. The Championship is brutal.

Alloa *technically* were relegated in 1994 with a goal difference of +2 but that was part of the restructure from three divisions to four.  They finished seventh in the old Second Division.

True, but hence...

... as 7 clubs were relegated to the new Second Division in 1975 with positive GD, having finished outside top 6.

Slightly off topic, but when Reading were winning during a match away to QPR in the English Championship on a Friday night last season , they went top with a negative goal difference. The season must have been a good 10+ games old, so was very unusual.

Didn't last long as QPR eventually won the game and Reading have subsequently went to pot
