Whilst Luton Town's men's team have experienced both emotional extremes this season with a Wembley Cup Final success and relegation to the Conference, the ladies team have enjoyed a marvellous campaign which has seen them win a place in the Premier League just eight years after their formation.
Luton made a flying start to the season by winning each of their first five matches before becoming involved in a four-way battle for the title.
That title race went all the way until the final matches of the season and it was Luton who were to strike a decisive blow in their last match with a 5-0 victory over Welwyn Garden City, ending their opponents' chances in the process. That left Enfield Town needing to beat Gillingham by 22 goals in their last match and the task proved to be impossible, the resulting 2-2 draw meaning that Luton could finally celebrate becoming Champions.
Luton also enjoyed a good run in the F.A.Women's Cup which took them as far as the Fourth Round, beating Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion along the way before bowing out at the hands of top flight opponents Blackburn Rovers.
Manager David Baker has been well served by the members of his squad all the way, led by central defender Carly Cowell with Becky Clark alongside her. Rebecca Kane and Micky Taylor have provided the majority of the goals and other key roles have been played by the likes of Michelle Byrne, Jade McEntaggart and Nicki Livingstone amongst others.
Luton have come a long way in a short space of time and it will be interesting to see how they fare at the second tier of women's football next season.
