Weekly marks club’s League return with wraparound

A weekly newspaper celebrated its local football team’s return to League football with an eight-page wraparound.

Luton Town were relegated from the Football League to the Conference Premier League five years ago and since then have unsuccessfully contested the play-offs on three occasions.

However this year they finally made it back by winning the Skrill Premier League with three games to spare.

Local Johnston Press title the Luton News celebrated with an eight-page special which hit the streets yesterday.

Editor Lynn Hughes said:¬† “After Luton Town finally¬† won the Skrill Premier title which sees them back in the Football League we felt we had to do something to help celebrate.

“It started out from a discussion in the office last week for a wrap around front and back page and quickly grew to an eight page supplement.

“For our page designer and Hatters fan Duncan Jackson it was a dream come true. When we asked him if he could design it he said he’d been waiting five long years for the chance!”

The wraparound featured a masthead in the club’s orange colours.
