Make sure you get your special edition programme
Don’t miss out on a bumper final edition of the Hatters’ matchday programme for 2016-17 tonight – with a 100-page Talk of the Town costing £3.50!
Inside the perfect-bound play-off semi-final publication, manager Nathan Jones uses his notes to ask for the near 10,000-strong Hatters crowd inside Kenilworth Road tonight to give his side a helping hand against Blackpool.
Nathan writes: “What we need is one final push from everyone of Luton Town persuasion inside this packed old ground tonight, whether in the technical area, on the pitch or in the stands, because you can be our proverbial 12th man.
“I talk about our substitutes being ‘Game Changers’. You can be too. You can help turn this game around.
“I always say how proud I am of my players, how proud I am to manage this club and how proud I am of the support we get.
"Nearly 1,700 making a 400-mile round-trip on a Sunday night was unbelievable. I was bursting with pride when I came out to that wall of sound to my left.
“I thank you for your patience, your understanding and your continuous backing since I took over.
"Finishing fourth is a great improvement on 18th place after my first game in charge in January last year. It can get better still.
“So let’s make Kenilworth Road a cauldron, let’s experience one of those famous Luton Town nights under the lights and move a step closer to fulfilling our ultimate goal for the season. Promotion.”
As well as chief executive Gary Sweet’s boardroom notes and Scott Cuthbert’s final captain’s column of the campaign, there is a four-page obituary to the late Luton News sports editor and LTFC programme editor Brian Swain, in whose memory we have dedicated this issue following his sad passing a fortnight ago.
There is also a six-page look at Luton’s previous play-off campaigns by club historian Roger Wash, a farewell from outgoing youth team boss Paul Driver and a ten-page review of the Hatters’ season.
Make sure you pick up your copy from the usual outlets and, as physio Simon Parsell says in his laugh-out-loud Trick or Treatment column, quoting Eighties singer Shalamar: “Let’s make it a night to remember!”
