The best Luton XI since the Millennium – Goalkeepers

Published

on

It has been a wild ride for Luton Town since the turn of the Millenium, with the Hatters tasting despair and victory at multiple levels of the English football period.

As a result, it has also been a period which has produced some seriously iconic players for the club and, here at Football League World, we are looking at the very best they have had in this time.

You will have the chance to vote on the best option for each position on the field, and today, we are starting in goal.

Here are your FOUR options and a bit about each candidate…

James Shea

He may have only spent one season as the Hatters number one since the turn of the Millenium, but it was arguably the best spell seen at Kenilworth Road.

In the 2018/19 campaign, he made 41 League One appearances, keeping 19 clean sheets and conceding just 35 goals, the second-fewest of any Luton goalkeeper in a single Football League season this Millenium.

Simon Sluga has since taken his spot in between the sticks, but Shea’s outstanding campaign should not be forgotten.

Dean Brill

Now retired, Brill was a reliable presence between the sticks for Luton across six seasons this Millenium.

In total he kept 19 clean sheets, often playing second-fiddle at Kenilworth Road, but always someone who could be counted on to step up when it mattered.

Brill spent a total of ten years with the Hatters before finally leaving for Inverness back in 2013. Spells with Motherwell, Colchester and Leyton Orient followed before he retired earlier this year.

Mark Tyler

For six seasons he was the club’s number one, despite joining the club at the ripe old age of 32 back in 2009.

In total he kept 76 clean sheets in just over 200 games for the club, playing every minute of every league match as they finally returned to the Football League in 2014, keeping 23 clean sheets in the process.

He continued as number one until March 2016 when he forced a move back to his former side Peterborough United where he has remained, now a goalkeeping coach for The Posh.

Marlon Beresford

His time at Kenilworth Road was far from smooth, moving too and from the club five times in total, but there is little doubting that he was a stand-out goalkeeper for them.

He was first-choice in goal for four separate seasons, keeping a total of 34 clean sheets in that time in the league, and ended his playing career with the club in 2008 with over 120 Luton appearances to his name.
