Luton Town’s long road back up the divisions took another huge step last season, but they’ve still got some way to go if they’re going to get to where they feel they belong.
They were the Premier League’s unlucky losers, dropping out of the old First Division during it’s final season and just missing out on the money train as it arrived in the station.
Since then there’s been a slow but steady collapse, administration, 30-point deductions and eventually a promotion masterminded by Nathan Jones.
They’re back in League One for the first time since 2008 and once again they’re hoping to go straight through it. Last time they arrived at this level it was the first of three successive relegations that resulted in a lost Football League status. Jones is hoping to see the Hatters move in the opposite direction.
They’ve been active in the market already, bringing in Nottingham Forest player Jorge Grant after his impressive spell at Notts County. Their squad already boasted fine footballers such as James Collins and Luke Berry and they seem ready to carry their winning mentality forward into League One.
Of course, not everyone who is on board will stay for the full journey, with several players surely primed to get off long before the League One season is in full flow. FLW looks at two Luton Town players likely to be wearing another club’s colours by the time we kick off in August.
