Come and Meet the Players and Management
As the end of the season approaches and our nails are increasingly bitten with the uncertainty of promotion, one thing does not change. That is our annual End of Season Presentation Evening.
We all hope that on 22nd April 2012 we will not be marking the end of the season as we are all holding our breath for the chance of another shot at the Play Off Finals, this year at Wembley, but whether we are successful or not our Presentation Evening is a chance to reward the players with our regular awards:
• Goal of the Season
• Players Player of the Season
• “SOLYD” Youth Player of the Season
• And of course “The Official LTFC Player of the Season”
• + many others
This year the event is being held on Sunday 22nd April 2012 at a new venue – Venue Central 2 (http://www.venuecentral.co.uk/britannia-estates/index.html). Tickets are available priced £20 for LTSC members and £25 for non-members. As always each table will have one of the players or management on it and if you would like to reserve a table you can do this for £180 which gets you 9 tickets to share between friends and family.
All profits from the bar on the evening will be donated to SOLYD (www.solyd.co.uk)
We hope to see you all there.
Fixture change angers fans
Luton Town supporters find themselves inconvenienced yet again by the decision on police advice to switch the match at Hayes & Yeading from 3:00pm on a bank holiday Monday to a Tuesday evening kick-off. Three fixtures in the first month of the season will not take place on their original dates which is simply unacceptable.
As ever it seems that football supporters are the last people to be considered when these decisions are made. Football bemoans the lack of young supporters and yet fixtures are moved to a time which precludes many from attending. This is not good for fans or for the club’s gate.
Luton Town Supporters Club understands that one of the reasons given for moving the Hayes & Yeading game is that police resources will be stretched due to the Notting Hill Carnival. If that is the case then why did the Conference ever schedule this match for Bank Holiday Monday? The dates of the carnival were well known before the fixture list was drawn up.
While LTFC had little say in this fixture change, the Supporters Club have been in contact with them to express our disgust at another fixture change and the inconvenience it will cause supporters. We are also in dialogue with the Football Supporters Federation whose Fans’ blueprint for the future of the beautiful game includes a call for
An end to constant fixture changes to suit television or policing
The FSF certainly have our full backing on that one.
