For the second season in a row, Nathan Jones and his Luton Town staff and squad have received recognition from the League Managers’ Association for an outstanding performance in the opening week of the campaign.
The Hatters gaffer has picked up the LG Performance of the Week award for the stunning 8-2 victory over Yeovil Town in the Sky Bet League Two opener at Kenilworth Road last Saturday.
Just as last year, when the 3-1 EFL Cup victory over Championship giants Aston Villa caught the eye, an LMA panel of Sir Alex Ferguson, Howard Wilkinson, Barry Fry, Dave Bassett and Joe Royle plumped for the Town’s goal glut against the Glovers as their week’s best.
Well done to Nathan and the guys for kicking off the season in fine style.
The gaffer will be presented with the award tomorrow when Sky Sports visit The Brache to interview him for this week’s Gillette Soccer Saturday show.
