FIRST DAY AT LUTON TOWN
New Luton Town manager Josh Townend completed his first day in his new role at Luton Town. He was first introduced to his staff before sitting down with them in a 2-hour meeting discussing tactics, potential signings and who should do what.
He then went for another 2-hour meeting with the chairman-who proved to be a colourful character. He revealed the details of the contract to Townend- £625 a week until June 2013- as well as the fact that the minimum expectation for the forthcoming season would be to win the league, despite working without a transfer budget.
After lunch with his employers and employees, he headed to the training ground to meet his team. Just has he arrived, he saw who his most important player would be as centre-back Gary Pilkington absolutely annihilated Jamie Hand with a firm but fair sliding tackle.
After a long day at work, he then met the press. He had this to say:
"I'm absolutely delighted to be here. I know what the chairman expects of me and I have made it clear to the lads what I expect of them"
"We all want a year of success which constitutes going back up to league two. We'll see where we go from there but that promotion is the main aim for now"
