The Definitive Luton Town FC

Paperback
By Steve Bailey

“Overall, this is a great statistical record for Luton fans. There are some gaps in the early years on attendances, and the accuracy I haven’t checked although the authors say they have double and triple-checked so it should be good.

Of course, this isn’t up-to-date now and a more recent record can be found within the book Luton Town Football Club: A Full Record: 1885-2010.”

Luton Town: An Illustrated History

Paperback
By Roger Wash

Apologies for the blurry cover image!

“Highlights include photos from away friendlies in 1956 against Barcelona, presumably at the Nou Camp, and Dynamo Bucharest where 120,000 spectators turned out; a picture of Ron Baynham making a save in the 1950s, long before goalies wore gloves; the famous photo of Town fans dressed up prior to the 1959 FA Cup final (this can be seen on the cover too); Pleat doing the jig across the Maine Road pitch in 1983 (also on the cover); all the Luton goals from the victorious 1988 League Cup final and pictures of former stars in action such as Graham French and Malcolm MacDonald.

Because it is picture-based it is quicker to consume than a written history too. Still for a die-hard Luton fan this nostalgia-filled book is sure to be a big hit.”

Luton Town: Back Where We Belong: A season of dream, or a lesson in reality​

Luton Town: Back Where We Belong: A season of dream, or a lesson in reality

Paperback
By Chris Luke

“This is an excellent book, written in a diary style, from a supporter’s view point of the 2014/15 season. It’s well written, with an honest opinion of his thoughts at the time. With some humour, and sometimes reflective, it contains match reports and events that happen during the week, with the author sometimes drifting into his other passions of cricket and horse racing. I would recommend it to any football fan, not just Luton Town supporters.”

Steve Woodward, Amazon review

Hardcover
By Alan Adair

A truly dedicated fan’s life following their club – right from the very start in 1966.

“This is a detailed and certainly unique account by someone who has followed the club so passionately over the years. He proves the point, if ever one needed to be made, that the life of a Luton Town supporter is anything but dull.”

Roger Wash, Luton Town Football Club Historian
