The best Luton XI since the Millennium – full backs

Published

on

Luton Town have had a rollercoaster of a Millennium so far and that is showing no signs of stopping soon as they fight against relegation from the Championship this season.

With nine matches remaining, the Hatters sit second bottom of the table but just six points from climbing out of trouble.

So when the season does get back underway, they are sure to be one club to keep an eye on during the run-in.

However, with no football at the moment, we have decided to look back at the past 20 years and pick the best Luton side of the Millennium, with the help of you, the fans.

This time it is the turn of the full-backs. We have given you FOUR options to choose from below and you can vote for your favourite at the end…

James Justin

Now at Leicester City, Justin was a focal point of the club’s promotion-winning side during the 2018/19 campaign, playing 43 League One games in total.

In those matches he provided three goals and eight assists as Luton romped to the title under Mick Harford with Justin earning his big money move to the Premier League during the following summer.

Those impressive statistics were even racked up playing on the left of the defence, rather than his preferred right.

Jack Stacey

A teammate of Justin’s, Stacey’s impact was felt across the last two seasons for Luton – playing a big part in both of their back-to-back promotion wins.

Last season he notched four goals and eight assists in 45 matches whilst the campaign before in League Two saw him score one goal and provide six more assists.

Like Justin, Stacey also earned a Premier League move last summer, now plying his trade with Bournemouth, but his impact in the club’s most successful period in years should not be forgotten.

Sol Davis

A jump back to the start of the Millennium now and to left-back Sol Davis.

Signed from Swindon Town in 2002, Davis spent seven years at Kenilworth Road, racking up over 200 appearances in the process.

During that time he only netted three goals and provided two assists, according to TransferMarkt, but there is no doubt that he was a reliable presence in defence for The Hatters for many years.

Scott Griffiths

Signed in 2013 on an initial short-term deal, Griffiths went on to become a crucial part of Luton’s promotion-winning side the following season, playing in every single match as they finally returned to the Football League.

That season saw the club keep a record 23 clean sheets and he remained a first-choice option in League Two as well, but eventually fell out of favour when Nathan Jones was appointed.

In total, he made 115 appearances for the Hatters.
