Luton Town player
To Luton Borough Council,
I joined Luton Town FC in the summer after a pretty successful season with Oxford United, in which we were promoted. I was offered the chance to stay with Oxford, but the pull of playing for Luton Town and working with Nathan Jones was a massive opportunity I couldnt turn down.
One of Nathans biggest selling points was the fact that the club want to build this new stadium, and after seeing the plans and being talked through the ideas behind it, I knew I could be part of something huge by signing for the club.
I am a London boy so I know where to go for all my shopping, but one of the places I never really take into consideration is Luton. I dont mean that as a stab at the Town, I love it here! But the fact is, the centre doesnt provide the shops or facilities that other top shopping centres have, such as the one in Milton Keynes or certain places in London.
Newlands Park in my eyes would go a long way to fixing this and I hope to see it when its completed. That is why I am supporting these plans: Power Court- 16/01400 & Newlands Park 16/01401.
