Season One: August-October Update
So the Luton adventure had begun! Our target for this season, and certainly our expectation, was to earn promotion to the Sky Bet League Two. So, without further delay, let's see how we did in the first three months under my reign!
The season started with an away game versus Southport, who we demolished by a sound score of 3-0. We then followed on in the same vein of form with five wins and one draw in the next six games, including demolishing wins against Forst Green and Kidderminster. However, we then suffered our first loss of the season away to Wrexham and inconsistency then began to bite in, as we won just four and drew five of our following nine matches. However, we did beat Cray in the FA Cup 4th Qualifying Round, which sees us enter the FA Cup 1st Round, where the real work starts. Overall, I am delighted with our start to the season. Despite the inconsistency, we managed to claim a lot of points, and remain unbeaten at home. It is always difficult to pick up results straight from taking over the reigns of a club, especially in the lower leagues, so I am pleased that we only suffered one loss in the first three months of the season.
Player Of The Months
has been our stand-out performer so far this season. He has been an inspirational signing, and has played well wherever he has been asked to play. I have deployed him on the left, on the right, but most often up front, where he has shown some truly lethal form in front of goal, leading the league's scoring chart with ten goals, and with eleven goals in all competitions. The young Colombian attacker has also claimed three assists, and has two man of the match performances to his name. He has been crucial to our team so far this season, and could become an iconic player for Luton Town in the years to come!

Despite our rather inconsistent form, we are top of the table with 33 points after 16 games! With a two point gap between us and second-placed Cambridge, I suppose that you could consider this season to be rather successful so far. Our Goal Difference is already far superior to others in the league, and that is mainly due to our rock-solid defence, which has conceded just 14 goals so far. We have a six point safety net from any club outside of the promotion play-off zone, so we are relatively safe right now, but we cannot get complacent. We are just over a third of the way through the season, and we have plenty more work to do. Hopefully we can continue in the same way and top the table by the end of the season.
November & December Fixtures
We have at least twelve fixtures to play over the course of the next two months. If we do manage to overcome Torquay in the FA Cup, we will have thirteen games. We do not yet know who we will be playing in the FA Trophy, but hopefully we can be competitive in this competition, as it is one which I feel that we can win. Our key fixtures will be the two away games against Cambridge and Barnet in December. They will be the most difficult matches, and ones which we need to win in order to cement our position at the top of the league. Hopefully we can come up with good results over the ten league games, and I will be hoping for 18 points or more.
Well that was the first "results update" as such. If you guys want to see more information, comment below with some suggestions, or if you guys want to see a change in something, comment below too. Yes, before you all say, I know that the league competition logo is old. I am using a Logopack from FM13, so a lot of my logos are old ones.
