John Faulkner

It is with great sadness that the LTST Committee have learnt of the passing of John Faulkner this morning (30 Dec).

John was a legendary centre half with the club making 239 league and cup appearances and scoring 7 goals in total. He played a massive role in the 1973 – 74  promotion winning season to Division 1.

On a personal note I was honoured to meet John at the LTFC ‘Legends Evening’ christmas dinner on 17 December 2014, John you were a true gentleman.

Club historian Roger Wash has written an obituary here:

Our condolences go to John’s family at this difficult time.


  1. Aaron Tighe says:

    This news has brought me to tears.
    Thank you John for being such an influential person in my life. Your lessons and faith in me have been with me always.

    John was our youth Coach in our 1st year as an apprentice in 1985, he joined us when David Coates had moved on. We had won the Southern Counties youth League the previous season and John took us to new heights as winners of the Southern Junior Floodlit Cup beating Spurs and Chelsea in the final games.

    I have so many memories of John in my 7 years at the club which have come rushing back. My Autobiography tells a story of me and John in the Epliogue amongst many other stories. He was such a kind soul, always encouraging, believing in you.

    God bless John, thank you, thank you, thank you.


  2. It’s such sad new to hear the passing of John Faulkner (Known as Max to his team mates) As a supporter who was brought up on the late 60 and early 70’s football at Kenilworth Road, John was one of those that I loved watching with his ‘never say die’ approach to the game and always played with his ‘heart on his sleeve’.
    Having met him many times and always had time for Supporters and people in the game, he was a great man to have around Kenilworth Road after his playing career came to an end with his interest in the ‘Physiological side of this great game’.
    He will be missed in the game and l am like all football and Luton Supporters send our condolences to his family and close friends. God Bless you Max !
