Full Circle

This time in 2006, Luton Town had just completed a successful season in The Championship, finishing 10th.  It’s been a long 13 years since then, with three consecutive relegations in 2007, 2008 & 2009 and five seasons in non-league before the return journey finally began in 2014 with promotion back to the Football League.  A second promotion from League 2 to League 1 followed 12 months ago and yesterday, a 3-1 home win against Oxford confirmed Luton as champions of League 1.  Next season, we will be playing in the The Championship once again!

The promotion celebrations took place today in St George’s Square, Luton.
