Malcolm Macdonald

Former Luton Town player

To whom it may concern,

If I had a pound for every time I've heard over the years, and decades, that Luton Town Football Club was moving to a new ground, I could afford to buy my old Club outright and build them a new ground myself!

It's a Club and town I'll always remember fondly for the two years I spent there before I had to be sold to Newcastle United amid another of the regular financial crises that have affected the Town's aspirations over the years.

Whenever I've heard talk of moving I've always raised an eyebrow, because it's usually involved the land next to the motorway. Right out of the way with no chance for the people of the town to walk to the game.

How refreshing it was then to hear that the latest plan is not to build the stadium on that plot by junction ten, but to use that for a shopping, leisure and business centre that is easily accessible for people to drive to from all around the south-east and Midlands, with an iconic new football ground in the heart of town. Right where it should be – the very centre of the community, like St. James' Park is for Newcastle.

For supporters to be able to jump off the train or walk through the town centre will be just like the good old days, when the railway used to run behind Kenilworth Road. I see the old place now on TV and it it looks much like it did when I signed in 1969. New seats have spruced the place up a bit, but even in my time, the way the stadium is penned in by the terraced housing, prevented the Club from flourishing.

If the planning is granted I can see the Club shooting up the Football League. I've returned to Luton to speak at dinners in recent years and the passion and ambition is clearly still there.The people who saved the football Club from oblivion need help in trying to bring their vision for the town to life and reality however, and I sincerely hope and wish Luton Borough Council give them that all important helping hand.

Yours,

Malcolm Macdonald
