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!
