Gary Sweet and the Marketing Team turn the tables on BarringerOUTGOING PRESS OFFICER KLAXON!
Yesterday saw the end of an era at Luton Town Football Club, as long-standing press officer, programme editor and social media guru Andrew Barringer covered his last match for the Town. Barringer, who covered his first match for the Hatters (against Shrewsbury) in November 2008 is thought to be the first signing ever made in the Luton Town 2020 era. Since then he has gone on to travel the country with the Town, to cover countless matches from the press box, ensuring that supporters have been kept up to date with all the Hatters news. Andrew is also affectionately known as 'Ropes' - a reference to his passing resemblance to ex-hatter Ian Roper.
Andrew's voice will be familiar to subscribers to Hatters Player and youtube as the voice of our post match interviews, and has also been responsible for editing our matchday programme - which has been consistently recognised as one of the best publications in polls. His matchday coverage on Twitter is also extremely popular with supporters, thanks to his quirky style.
Andrew is leaving the club to pursue a new career in Austria, where he will be transferring his skills across to a different sport - Volleyball.
After the press formalities were finished yesterday, Hatters chief executive Gary Sweet, and members of the Marcomms team turned the camera on Andrew to get his thoughts on his time with the Club - watch the clip below.
On behalf of everyone at the Club, we'd like to thanks Andrew for all of his hard work and commitment, and to wish him the very best for his new career.
Good luck Ropes!
