It’s rare in English football that a team does back-to-back promotions, but Luton Town could be doing just that
After being promoted from League Two, the Hatters have continued their incredible rise by putting themselves in the driver seat for promotion to the Championship, establishing themselves as the best team in League One with a team compromised of the perfect balance of experience and youth.
Their club-record 28-game unbeaten run has been the main achievement for Luton this season as Mick Harford’s team, and with promotion not confirmed just yet, the Bedfordshire-based team have set themselves up for a promising future should they book their return to the Championship.
Luton have been a team that have defied the odds this season, and promotion to the Championship will put the club on a path that will see Hatters fans one daydreaming of a return to the English top-flight, something that could actually be possible if they continue to steady the boat.
The Hatters have done everything a football club with big ambitions should be doing and doing it perfectly. If Luton can manage this level of consistency with both signing players, bringing through youth and making sure everything behind the scenes is running smoothly, Harford could find his side as a comfortable Championship side in their first season back in the English second-tier in years.
But to achieve this goal, the club will have to be able to retain their current crop of players who are likely to be targeted this summer from teams in higher divisions, but if Harford can convince the likes of James Justin and James Collins to remain the club for the future, it would be a major sign of intent.
Luton have the tools, the backroom staff and the players to make an impact in the Championship, and if the stars can align again for the club, they could find themselves building a future that nobody expected.
