DAVID PLEAT: Luton's glorious promotion to the Premier League is PROOF great things can be achieved
What a wonderful day for Luton and for small clubs everywhere. Its proof that, with good housekeeping, sound recruitment and realistic ambition, great things can be achieved.
That little old Luton are now in the Premier League is a great compliment to the current directors and all the hard-working staff they employ. It has been a difficult road back from the depths of the non-League game and huge credit must go to John Still as he was the manager who brought Luton back up into the Football League.
Without him none of what we saw at Wembley would have been possible. He is a great football man with a well of wisdom to draw from.
Saturday was a glorious day for the 38,000 supporters who saw Luton somehow edge past Coventry. What drama. The sadness for me is that only 10,000 of them will be able to watch the team take their steps back in the top division next season. Kenilworth Road has not changed at all since I was last manager there in the 1990s.
