A message from TiL re new memberships
Wow - we were hoping for a good response to last night’s announcement, but we never expected the ‘fan’tastic amount of online applications (well over 100!) – we’re working through them, but please be patient if you’re one of the people affected by email or PayPal issues. The news has even been picked up by the BBC
We’ll get it sorted asap, but remember we’ve all got day jobs so it takes a little longer!
Don’t let that put you off applying for membership though – the more the merrier, or as a wise man (John Still!) says, the stronger the team, the stronger the team! We’re entering an exciting new era of fan involvement with 2020 and we’d love to see you all come on board….there’s a great journey ahead for our club, and you are part of it.
PS…it’s only just begun - watch this space!

Club to literally Trust in Luton
Luton Town and Trust in Luton – working together to protect the future of your club
Can you imagine Luton Town being renamed London Luton Dons on the whim of a new owner?
Or see changing our colours to yellow and red?
Perhaps the club crest swapped for a moose head?
How about our nickname being changed from the Hatters to something?
Or even worse, Happy Harry being killed off and replaced by a dragon, or something else considered lucky on the other side of the world?
Stranger things have happened – and are happening – in the world of modern football. It’s an alarming, and unwelcome, trend.
But we are Luton Town. With over 125 years of proud history. For generations, we have been an essential part of the identity and fabric of the town. And that’s the way we all want it to stay.
Luton Town 2020 – all of them lifelong Luton fans – have always said that they are little more than custodians of this wonderful club of ours. They are not planning on leaving; in fact, they'd like to think that they, and their successors, will be here for another 125 years.
But events in our relatively recent past, and currently in the news elsewhere, show just how fragile a club’s identity can be. That’s why Trust in Luton is such an important organisation - and why 2020 and the Trust have been working together to protect the future of your club from the perils of potential bad owners, chancers and asset strippers. Potentially people who don’t care about Luton Town in the way true fans do.
With this in mind we are delighted to announce that 2020 and Trust in Luton have agreed a deal to protect the exclusive image rights of Luton Town, which includes the name, nickname, mascot, colours and crest.
The Trust, the official fans’ shareholders in the Club, will from now on have the legal right to veto any changes in the decision on club name, kit colours and alterations to the club crest and mascot identity This means that the club’s image is protected and protected by people who will always care and always be there.
Asset identity like this is a major step forward towards securing our club for the next generation, and the next.
The agreement between the Club and the Trust will also set out aims for a greater ‘fan ownership’ scheme conditional upon an increase in membership presenting the chance for members to invest in the Club through shares owned by the Trust. But it can only truly succeed with a strong Trust in place. And that’s where you can do your bit.
Don’t just think about joining the Trust. Do it today, if you haven’t already.
Membership costs just £10 per year to join for which you will now have a part to play in protecting your club’s identity; The Hatters playing in Luton colours with the proper club crest. You’ll even help keep good old Happy Harry in a job too!

Muzzas Musings - March 2014
What a difference a year makes.
Incredibly it is just a year since John Still arrived at Kenilworth Road and began the task of building a team capable of promotion, not just from the Conference but through the Football League.
Within a few days of arriving at the Club, John offered to meet the supporters at an evening hosted by Trust in Luton. You may have been there and indeed may well have joined the Trust at the door as your admission fee. Anyone who saw John - together with Terry Harris - that night couldn't help but be impressed as he spelt out his clear but achievable objectives, the standards he expects from his players and the part the fans would play if success were to be won. All delivered with his cheerful good humour.
Since that time, the Trust has also been active behind the scenes, including regular meetings with the Club's management. These are two way exchanges; we know what the Club are doing and they understand the supporters' point of view. As a result of those discussions we expect to announce some exciting supporter-participation news soon. We have also been in discussion with Luton Town Supporters Club and we also expect to announce soon how they and Trust in Luton will combine forces to create a bigger, better supporter organisation.
In order to fulfil our potential we need as many supporters as possible to become members or maintain their Trust in Luton membership and if your own annual membership is about to expire we ask you to renew. The easiest way to do this is via the link on this website using our PayPal facility. You can renew for a year, or with built-in annual renewals if you like. There are concessions available and if everything goes to plan, membership will automatically include membership of the Supporters Club in due course. Any problems, please email
Here's to continued success on and off the pitch!
