The Wellingborough Titans are an English club from Wellingborough, currently playing the in Premier League.
The club was formed on September 13th, 2006 (at the end of season 3) in English 6th Division. Season 16 marks the clubs 13th. Wellingborough Titans are the current English Champions after winning the Premier League in Season 15, following promotion from 2:2 in Season 14.
In The BeginningEdit
Wellingborough Titans were formed as Manchester Titans Football Club in the basement of a an old fork factory by descendents of the founders of Newton Heath. The aim was to build a second "massive" Manchester club to compete with the mighty Manchester United. After successfully applying for membership of the lower leagues, the club were soon being recognised as "more English than Arsenal, and less corrupt than Chelsea". At one point, the legendary Roy Keane was over heard saying that a great team was in the making. The fans and staff have since taken ownership of that statement and it is now assumed that the legend was talking about Manchester Titans. Because of the strength of this link, the stadium was named in his honour. However tradegy struck one Sunday afternoon when a meteor struck the team bus while on the way to a training match against Real Madrid U-11 B, reserve side. All the players and staff were tragically killed apart from the mascot, who was then promoted to Chairman. At the end of Season 10, the club was taken over, and relocated to the town of Wellingborough, and was then renamed to Wellingborough Titans. The new stadium was called Gypsy Lane. The club continue to look for a rich Russian to prostitute themselves out to.

Club Crest and ColoursEdit
The club traditionally wear red/white as a home strip, and green as an away strip. The second colour of the away strip will often change over seasons though.
The crest has undergone significant changes since its inception in season 4, as detailed in the boxes on the right. The current logo (shown at the top of the page) was adopted at the beginning of season 14, and was intended to present a modern aggressive look for the club, and hopefully signal the beginning of an new era for the club.
