Luton Town player
Dear Luton Borough Council,
As a Luton Town player I am writing to register my support for Power Court and Newlands Park.
Im currently working my way back to fitness from a broken leg and cant wait for the day I run out at Kenilworth Road again. Long-term the aim for all of us at the club is to still be around to be able to play in the Hatters first game at the new stadium, when it is built.
Its such an exciting time to be around the club, even though its frustrating for me at present. The buzz created by the plans and the models of Power Court and Newlands Park that we see every time we go up to the Eric Morecambe lounge at the ground is something else. Ive been at the club for over a year now, but I know from speaking to some of the lads who signed this summer that one of the main reasons was the clubs ambition to progress through the divisions so a higher standard of football will be guaranteed for 2020 when hopefully the new ground will be built. We all want to be part of it.
The Newlands Park development next to the M1 will be brilliant for shopping and the leisure complex will be ideal for the lads to relax after training. Therell be loads of jobs created to attract people to come and work in the area, and therell be so many visitors coming to spend their money in Luton.
The stadium designs are unbelievable. It will be one of the best grounds in the south-east and a place everyone will want to tick off their list to say theyve been to. It will make Luton a place people want to visit again and give not just football fans, but everyone in the community chance to come and have a coffee, a pint, a meal or just get some fresh air by the river. Like Kevin Costner said in Field of Dreams If you build it, he will come! Get it built LBC!!
