WHAT A YEAR 2018 HAS BEEN FOR THE HATTERS!

From Sky Bet League Two promotion to second-place in League One...

31 December 2018

From a 4-2 come-from-behind win with ten men against Lincoln as we progressed towards promotion from Sky Bet League Two, to Saturday's fantastic finale to take a point from being 2-0 down at Walsall, 2018 has been a year to remember for the Hatters!

This lunchtime we popped down to The Brache to get manager Nathan Jones' reflections on the year we are about to bid farewell - and to look ahead to kicking off 2019 with a full house at Kenilworth Road as we welcome promotion rivals Barnsley.
