GIANTKILLING WINS FA AWARD

3 May 2013

Hatters to receive FA prize before FA Cup final

The Hatters are proud to announce that the Club has won the Football Association’s Ronnie Radford Award.


The Town created history by becoming the first non-league club to knockout a team out of the Premier League in the FA Cup thanks to the 1-0 victory at Norwich City in January.


The Hatters topped the FA’s online poll with an impressive 60 per cent of the vote to find this season’s ‘giantkiller’, fending off achievements by MK Dons, Oldham and fellow Blue Square Bet Premier side Macclesfield, who beat Championship champions Cardiff City.


Representatives from the Club will be presented with the award by Ronnie Radford, who famously hit a memorable goal for Hereford United against Newcastle United in 1972, at next weekend’s FA Cup final at Wembley.


Three Hatters players will also be present at the final. Scott Rendell, Alex Lawless and Andre Gray won the FA Cup Player of the Round for the fourth, third and fourth qualifying rounds respectively, and will join the winners of the other rounds.


The Club would like to place on record its thanks to all supporters who voted in all the FA Cup polls this season.
