Meet the Manager
As previously announced we will be hosting a “Meet the Manager” evening at Kenilworth Road in the Eric Morecambe Suite on Monday 21st September, kicking off at 7.30pm.
Tickets are now on sale via the Club’s ticket office at £5 per person. This is an event for Trust members, but non-members can also purchase tickets in advance and join the Trust on the night. Annual Trust membership costs just £10, or £5 for age concessions.
These are always very enjoyable and informative evenings and give supporters the chance to put those burning questions to John Still and his coaching staff in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. And in case there is such a thing as a “shy” Luton fan you can also put your questions in writing if you prefer!
We look forward to seeing you on the night.

Earlier this week we received, from the Club, details of more than 600 people who have joined the Trust or renewed their Trust memberships through the Season Ticket scheme during the summer.
With that number of members' details to be checked and added to our new membership database it will inevitable be a little while before all our records are fully up to date and membership cards can be issued.
In the meantime, please be assured that if you have paid your membership during the past twelve months or you joined/renewed through your Season Ticket then you are a Trust member and confirmation will follow in due course.

A New Season dawns...
After a longer close-season than normal – no play-offs or World Cup or Euro’s to enjoy or endure – all Luton Town supporters are approaching the new season with more than our usual cheerful optimism. Looking back briefly at last season there was disappointment in some quarters that we fell just short of the promotion mix after being well placed at the halfway stage. However, it was actually a pretty good first season back in the Football League where, despite losing our top scorer, we competed very well for much of it and we all now have a better idea of what is required to succeed at this level.
Our signings in the summer have been a step up on last year and as each new player has come in, the bookmakers have cut our odds to win the division. Of course life, sport and football isn’t as simple as that and there are plenty of other teams out there who have the financial resources and ambition to mount serious challenges. What we can say though is that we have a financially sound and well run Club, a strong, experienced management team, a talented playing squad and of course, passionate and loyal supporters.
Since 2010 we have challenged strongly for promotion every season but those challenges are often roller-coasters and so, whatever the outcome next May, we can expect some ups and downs along the way.
Behind the scenes the Trust is making good progress. For a period, over the past 18 months, our largest membership since the early days of the Trust in 2003 coincided with our fewest active committee members and so we did struggle to keep up with the demands of a 1,000+ membership organisation. However, we have now been able to add some excellent new additions to our “squad” and we hope you will see soon improvements in our communications, amongst other things. We now have an active Twitter and Facebook presence and we expect to launch a new website soon. Our long-awaited new membership and payments database is taking shape and, once in place, that will improve immeasurably our membership administration which has been, until now, a source of frustration to us and to some of you.
With the Trust and Supporters Club now merged we are putting together a programme of Supporter events for you to take part in throughout the season and finally, we have, of course, continued throughout our close and regular dialogue with the Club on all matters, and will report on progress and developments as events allow.
Enjoy the season!

Charity begins at home
Tonight – for one night only – in another innovative move by Luton Town Football Club, Kenilworth Road becomes the Prostate Cancer UK Stadium. This temporary re-naming of Kenilworth Road tonight is a positive and powerful step.
The move has already generated huge interest both locally and nationally, and those people that track these things will tell you that the national recognition of Prostate Cancer UK will have gone up measurably over the past week, particularly amongst the Charity’s target demographic – yes, you men reading this – that’s you.
You can find out more by visiting http://menunited.prostatecanceruk.org/ now and you can make a contribution by following the instructions below.
So enjoy the game tonight, whether watching it live from your seat in the Prostate Cancer UK Stadium, or locally or around the world on TV. Three points are of course crucial but, sometimes in life, there are things that are even more important than that.
