Hatters pair thrilled to support of Prostate Cancer UK's cause
Town manager John Still and chief executive Gary Sweet will be proud spectators inside the Prostate Cancer UK Stadium on Tuesday night.
The Hatters take on Wycombe Wanderers in front of the live Sky Sports cameras with Kenilworth Road renamed to help raise awareness of the Football League’s official partner charity.
And, at a press conference on Monday, the pair were suitably honoured to be involved the initiative.
“What the club have done is fantastic and I’ll be very proud to manage the team for such a magnificent cause,” said Still.
“It’s a massive day, and football-wise it’s a big day as well – I think the name change will inspire both sets of players.
“I hope the game itself is a fantastic one, because if it is it’ll get spoken about in pubs that evening and the following day, people will be talking about it and will be reminded of the cause the game is in memory of.
“The more the word gets spread that this is a disease you can get over if you can look after yourself and catch it early, the better, and I think in that respect we will have done our job to help raise more awareness.”
Chief executive Sweet added: “We can’t help but be proud because Tuesday’s renaming of the stadium is a momentous occasion.
“What’s brought a smile to our faces is seeing the guys from Prostate Cancer UK, and for them to be thrilled at what we’re doing to accomplish for them – and for us all. Therefore we can’t help but be proud people – myself included and everyone associated with Luton Town Football Club.
“If this makes a change to one person inside the stadium or watching at home then this will be all worthwhile.”
