It is with great regret and sadness that the Hatters have to announce the untimely death of former Luton Ladies player Fay Howell at the age of 25.
Fay joined the Club as a 13-year-old and was part of some highly successful youth squads and two senior promotion squads in her years with the Club. She was one of just a few players to have represented Luton Town in the Premier League. We will all remember her for that trusty left foot and speed but most of all for just being Fay.
Fay was highly thought of by her team-mates and management at Luton and we have been flooded with tributes to her since learning of her death. In spite of her years, Fay packed an awful lot into her tragically short life and had a very successful career with Network Rail as well as being a budding musician where she played the drums in folk/rock band Rose’s and Pirates who had just released an EP and whose album is due for release on 24th March.
Fay was aged just 25 years old and died suddenly on 5th March 2013.
The Club paid its respects with a minute’s silence before the home game with Chichester City and was also delighted to see a number of Fay’s former mates attend to pay their respects.
The number 19 shirt will be retired from the Club in Fay’s memory.
Our sincere condolences to her father Mick, who for many years was an important part of the management team; mum Theresa, Sister Kelly, niece Brooke and of course her many team mates and friends. She will be missed by all who’s lives she touched.
Rest in peace Fay.
