    History repeating itself ? 50 years ago I went to my first Luton game we beat Crewe 4 1 to win promotion to Div 3. Last night we beat Crawley 4 1. That season Man City won Div 1 with Man U runners up dejavu 50 years on. Anyone who believes we arent going up as Champions needs help.

        Anyone remember a game near the end of that season against (I think) Stockport - we would have won 4-0 but someone in the Oak Rd blew a whistle, our defender caught the ball, ref awarded a penalty?

          I remember that match, I was in Oak Road, I think it was Keith Allen who caught it on hearing the whistle.

              Thank you Tring Hatter.

              The local press reported that it was John Moore who caught the ball but you are correct it was Keith Allen.

              This has been a long running arguement between me and another Luton pld timer (same age as Crumpsall)

              That was the next season, the idiot with the whistle.

              I remember it well as I was attacked after the game near Kingsway and had my scarf nicked....by two much older Luton blokes, who I unwisely pursued and took a few more punches from.

              Which led to me watching the 'Battle of the Oak Road' at the next home game, a few days later, from the KR end. They did me a favour in some ways, that was one violent and scary night!

                  Like it!

                  What a great game you started with, fantastic atmosphere too.

                  I believe it was NaG's first match as well.

                  Still my favourite ever season, despite some brilliant ones since then.

                    One of my big football regrets was missing the 4-0 Crewe game Crumps.

                    My Dad was away working and there was no way I was allowed to attend a midweek home game on my own, on a school night aged - two days short of my 10th birthday.

                    1967-68 was my first full season, I made sure I was at the last game v Brentford 2-1 Hatters in front of 14,643.

                    1981-82 is my all time personal fave Hatters season.

                                We were at that 3-1 Aldershot game for a Putteridge Junior School classmate's birthday party treat. He was sadly killed in a car crash in 1977 aged only 18 on the A505 Luton - Hitchin Road.

                                  I assume that Match 22nd should say March 22nd - it was actually 30 March - we played them away on 20 March (third attempt after two postponements).

                                  A good start to your Luton watching "career" - a goal in the first minute. Mr Pickwick (Roger Kirkpatrick) was ref.

                                    I travelled there for the two postponements, and then missed the actual game!

                                    My first match at Aldershot was only a few years ago, on your coach.
