Luton Town is a Better Story Than Wrexham: Nine years ago Luton Town was in the sixth tier of English football. If they beat Coventry City on Saturday, they'll be in the Premier League. "We've come a long way from a training ground with dog walkers cutting across our pitches and getting changed in portable cabins," said midfielder Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu, who has been with the club all the way up from the National League to League 2 to League 1 to the Championship.

There's a song about Wrexham as well.

I think the lyrics refer to the scion of the Tkachuk dynasty.
