- Re: On this day in 1890.....the first trouble at a game
“Why is it that our neighbours never neglect an opportunity of attacking a Luton football crowd? After having previously commented on the regrettable occurrences which marred the cup match between Luton and Wolverton, a writer in the Herts Express remarks while speaking of the new ground, “Let us hope the new arena will not soon be the scene of so disgraceful an exhibition as that which marred the meeting of the Town F.C. and Wolverton on the 8th.” I heartily re-echo this sentiment and I am sure that my readers agree with me, but surely bygones may be allowed to be bygones. The writer referred to had not the grace to allude to a statement which he would have found following the information as to the ground which he quoted. The report in this paper spoke of the means adopted by the Town Club committee to avoid, if possible a repetition of the disturbances, but this was not commented on by the gentleman referred to. Luton spectators are not quite so bad as they are painted, and the Town Club officials are entitled to credit for the steps they have taken.”
