John Still proud of achievements with Luton Town after Kenilworth Road departure

17 December 2015

Luton Town have parted company with John Still – but the manager says he is proud of his achievements at Kenilworth Road, which included guiding the club back to The Football League.

Still's departure brings to an end his tenure which started in February 2013, when the Hatters sat eighth in the Conference.

He led the club to a record-breaking campaign in 2013/14 which saw them lift the Conference crown and return to The League after a five-year exile.

The Hatters started last term strongly, topping the Sky Bet League 2 table after the first 15 games, but eventually finished eighth, only three points short of the Play-Offs.

They've struggled with inconsistency this time around and Still leaves the club sitting 17th in League 2 after suffering four successive defeats.

The 65-year-old told “Naturally I am hugely disappointed to be leaving Kenilworth Road but I would like to thank everyone involved at Luton Town for making my time at the club an enjoyable one.

“The Board of directors have been fantastic every step of the way, all of the staff – on the football side and behind the scenes – have been unbelievably supportive and the fans have been nothing short of incredible.

“The Conference championship season is one which will live long in my memory and I was proud and honoured to have played a part in bringing Luton Town back in to The Football League.

“I wish the Club all the very best for the rest of the season and beyond.”

Luton Academy and development manager Andy Awford will take care of first-team affairs until further notice, with the Hatters taking on Exeter City in Sky Bet League 2 this weekend.
