With promotion now assured with it being mathematically impossible for Cambridge (or anyone else) to catch us, Luton Town have three games left of the current season.
Wining those three games, against Welling, Forest Green Rovers and Hyde, would take us to 101 points for the season, a remarkable achievement and something that would tend the season on another high note.
With promotion assured the pressure is off the players and I`m hoping that John Still will give a few of the younger players in the squad a chance to shine.
Speaking to the media after Kidderminster had beaten Cambridge to ensure Luton were promoted, our boss commented on his management style, remarking,
"I have a way of doing things and giving young, hungry players a platform."
"It might not work straight away but it gradually works and I believe that will give the club greater success."
"At this level it is the right thing to do."
A mixture of golden oldies and talented youngsters has been our blueprint for a successful season, continuing Still goes on to infer that he always knew we`d get promotion but, wait for it, not this soon, with the gaffer adding,
"We always felt we had a good opportunity to win promotion but I didn`t think it would be in the first season so everyone is absolutely delighted."
"It is massive for fans, people who work at the club, the town."
"People look at Luton as a Football League club that was wronged and that has had to fight its way back and fortunately it has."
"Luton is a massive football club so, from that point of view, it is a special moment."
"The euphoria it has given the town is fantastic."
It certainly has. Walking to work there are Luton Town flags hanging out of windows, scarves trailing from cars but, best of all, everyone I talk to has had a smile put back on their faces.
The good times are back!
