Rise and Fall

The Southern League became Division Three after World War I and Luton remained in that division for seventeen seasons. The team won promotion from the Second Division in 1954-55. Following a brilliant season, Luton made their only appearance in the FA Cup final in 1959 losing to Nottingham Forest. They were relegated in the 1959-60 season, falling rapidly to the Fourth Division within the next six years. Depression set in and attendances dwindled.

In the mid 1980s the club became famous for instituting an "away fan ban" following a pitch invasion and hooliganism by Millwall fans. The ban and associated membership scheme was the idea of then chairman David Evans. This led to the club being expelled from the League Cup in the 1986/7 season as they refused to relax the ban in order to allow Cardiff City fans to attend the two-legged tie.

The most successful years in the history of Luton Town F.C were the 1980s, beginning with the already-mentioned promotion to the First Division in 1982. The Club celebrated their proudest moment at Luton Town Hall with their most famous fan, comedian Eric Morecambe. Pleat maintained Luton's First Division status over the next four seasons before moving to Tottenham. He handed over the reins to coach John Moore, who guided Luton to a seventh-place finish before handing in his resignation and being replaced by Ray Harford.

Harford inherited an impressive Luton squad including Les Sealey, Brian Stein, Danny Wilson, Ricky Hill, David Preece,Mal Donaghy and Mick Harford. They achieved a famous 3-2 victory over Arsenal in the League Cup final at Wembley. After Luton stunned the holders by taking a shock 1-0 lead early on, they seemingly ran out of steam, and by half-time Arsenal had overhauled them. Arsenal were still 2-1 up with ten minutes to go and Luton's goal had been continually under siege throughout the second half; however, the match turned on its head when Nigel Winterburn missed a penalty - had he scored, Arsenal would have almost certainly have won the final 3-1, but goalkeeper Andy Dibble turned the spot-kick round the post, and in the last seven minutes Luton scored twice to win 3-2. The League Cup triumph, still Luton's only major trophy, would have been enough for UEFA Cup qualification; but at this time all English teams were banned from European competitions due to the Heysel Disaster.

Harford was sacked less than two years later, in January 1990, with Luton battling relegation.


Relegation

Jim Ryan took over from Ray Harford as Luton's manager and was sacked after 16 months in charge despite securing First Division survival again at the end of the 1990-91 season. David Pleat was then appointed manager for the second time, but Luton were relegated on the last day of the 1991-92 season and have been outside the top flight of English football ever since.

Another relegation

Pleat remained in charge at Luton until the summer of 1995, when he moved to Sheffield Wednesday. His successor Terry Westley was sacked in December 1995, after just six months in charge, and Westley's successor Lennie Lawrence was unable to prevent Luton from finishing bottom of Division One and suffering relegation to Division Two.

Relegation number 3

Lawrence was sacked at the end of the 1999-2000 after four unsuccessful seasons which had seen Luton miss out on the chance to gain promotion. He was briefly replaced by Ricky Hill, who was in charge until November 2000 when Luton's terrible performances in Division Two cost him his job. He was in turn replaced by another Luton legend Lil Fuccillo, who was also sacked within months.

Success at last

Kinnear got Luton promoted at the first attempt (as Division Three runners-up in 2001-02) and they finished ninth in the 2002-03 Division Two campaign. Following a takeover that summer, Kinnear was sacked by the club's new owners who appointed former player Mike Newell as their new manager, claiming that he had been elected by a phone vote (which subsequent BBC documentary Trouble at the Top proved to be incorrect - Kinnear and Steve Cotterill got more votes than Newell, but neither was willing to work under the new board)!

Trust in Luton is a registered Industrial and provident society which acts as the supporters trust for fans of the English football team Luton Town. ...


Luton Town were among the pre-season favourites for relegation from Division Two in the 2003-04 season, but Newell surprised all the observers by taking the club close to a playoff place. This achievement was then surpassed in the 2004-2005 season when Luton were champions of Football League One and thus promoted to the Championship. At the end of the 2005-06 season they finished in 10th place. Newell expressed some disappointment that they didn't make the playoffs given their strong start, but promised to push for promotion to the Premiership following the 2006-07 season, which he felt could be achieved if some new signings were made.

Recently it has been claimed that the stadium proposal near the M1 will not be viable if Luton Airport is granted permission to build a new runway, but the validity of this claim is unclear. A new site is currently being looked at by the board close to the villages of Harlington and Toddington, near Junction 12 of the M1, the board has declared an intention to build a 20,000+ seater stadium to be ready for the 2008/09 season, but as yet it is not known if permission is likely to be granted or if it were, whether an inquiry would then be necessary because the site is on green belt land and the proposal includes large scale retail and warehousing development close to rural village communities. Local planning authorities have indicated that the plan is misconceived and in the context of the planned expansion of Milton Keynes and Luton/Dunstable and road improvements, the Club should consider a move to the new junction 11A of the M1.

Current season

The start of the season saw club captain Kevin Nicholls move to Leeds United for £700,000, and top scorer for the last five seasons Steve Howard move to Derby County for £1 million. Mike Newell assured supporters that replacements would be made with the funds generated, and Adam Boyd was signed for £500,000 from Hartlepool United soon after.

Rivalry

Luton fans maintain a rivalry with those of Watford F.C., which has been described by FourFourTwo magazine as the fiercest local rivalry in English football. The two sides met regularly in the Southern and Football Leagues from 1900 to 1937, but Luton's promotion meant that aside from a Southern Cup meeting, the two sides didn't meet again until 1964. Throughout the sixties and seventies the two sides met sporadically, and the rivalry gradually grew in significance, bringing with it trouble in the ground and outside of it. The two sides were promoted to the First Division in the 1981/82 season, with Luton taking the Championship ahead of Watford. The two sides were also relegated together from the new Division 1 in 1995/96. Watford's promotion from Division 2 in 1997/98 meant that the two sides didn't meet again in the League until the 2005/06 season, when Luton were promoted into the Championship. Clashes in the nineties had seen a decrease in violence, but a one-off League Cup tie in the 2002/03 was marred by violence inside Vicarage Road, as Luton fans spilled onto the pitch encouraging a mass brawl. The two clubs first League meeting in eight years, on January 2, 2006, passed largely without incident with Watford winning 2-1 at Kenilworth Road. Later on in the season the sides met at Vicarage Road, the game ending in a 1-1 draw. Watford Football Club are an English professional football club based in Watford, Hertfordshire. ...
