We welcome Kenilworth Road back to the 92!
It has been anything but plain sailing for Luton Town over the last half decade. Relegations, administration and points deductions led the Hatters out of the Football League. It’s not been an overnight process, but they’ve regrouped, rebuilt and after romping to the Conference title they’re back! We speak to Town’s official match commentator Simon Pitts about their journey. Groundsman: It has been a long and difficult road to regain your Football League status after 5 years, how did it feel when you clinched promotion? Simon: It was an amazing feeling, I thought it was going to happen in previous… Read more »
